Crater Range
Ajo, Arizona
The best astrophotography happens where the skies are dry and clear of pollutants including refracted light from nearby cities. As a youth in the late 60s, I spent a little more than a year with my family in Ajo, a remote mining town in southern Arizona where the surrounding deserts offer some of the clearest dark skies in the country. This was shot in Crater Range, some 10 miles north of town... a favorite camping area as a Boy Scout, with tall saguaro cactus and unique rocky outcroppings. The image was composited from 20 long exposures of the stars to eliminate noise and another 6 or 8 of the ground during which I light-painted the scene from the far left with a strong flashlight. The final image includes bright Venus at the low center frame and the bright and colorful center of our Milky Way galaxy at frame right.
