    Hi all, any idea what is a good location and time to shoot the Milky Way ? I am interested but all I know is it requires some place high and away from the city.

    Like I posted in a comment before the meetup, I got there late. By the time I was set up on a place I liked, it was pretty late and I didn't have time to get too many moving lights shots. That was disappointing, but I'll just go back, earlier, next time. Super cool location, super cool night shoot idea.

      I just sent the meeting location by email to all Yes RSVPs.

      I never got anything, so I'm not sure where to find the group. But how hard can it be to find 26 photographers? Please don't mark me as a no show - I really will try to find you.

    I'm definitely going but I think the gf wants to stop by the Art Walk in Fremont first so I probably can't be there until closer to sunset. Just a head's up

      The problem, Sheila is I'm only going to Fremont for the Underground and then to Santa Cruz and then back to San Jose. I'm not sure when I'll be leaving Fremont or SC, either

    Kid just informed me that there will be an event tomorrow and I need to be a driver. Sorry about that.

    Are we shooting any stars (when you say night photography?) .. Can't wait! :D

      I have not been there at night. Most state parks close at sunset.

      June 18, 2014

    • Mountain M.

      They do close at sunset, I was there a few months ago and was asked to leave after sunset. Although I have been on the beach shooting the rock at night and have seen others on the beach an night, but if you get the wrong ranger, you might regret it.
