In April 2019, I had the opportunity to spend the night at the Observatory on the Lomnicky Peak in the Slovak Tatras.
This is the second highest peak of these mountains, with a beautiful panorama of the entire range. My plan was to shoot all night to create a movie in time-lapse technique. But I also knew that at the very end of the astronomical night the Milky Way would start rising, capturing me very much cared. That is why I left one of the cameras free to focus on capturing it with the largest possible detail. The photo is the effect of a multi-minute exposure showing the center of the Milky Way rising over the southern horizon over the heavily lighted Poprad city. Despite the large light pollution that causes this city, thanks to the fact that I was more than 1500m above it, the visibility of the night sky was fantastic, which allowed me to capture the details of dust nebulas located on foreground of the galaxy center.
