Photographer's Note

Sweden (and other countries at high latitudes) is not the best place to photograph the Milky way at. In the northern hemisphere our galaxy is most photogenic and prominent in the summer months, but during the bright Scandinavian summer nights, you can hardly see a single star in the sky even around midnight. However in late August, and further in early September, there are some possibilities when astronomical dusk has arrived. It requires however nights without moonlight and when those nights happen, there must of course also be a clear sky, and thats something you can not always hope for here...

However this year I was lucky with some nights with the right conditions. This image is a panorama consisting of 8 separate frames.
