Got up at 5AM to catch this shot. Did not see the Milky Way untill I set ISO to 3200. I used magic mittens to keep the eruption from blowing out the image.

This is one of the many tricks I use to capture images under low light conditions. I call it Nocturnography: Finding Light In Darkness. If you would like to learn more about Nocturnography, I will be leading a workshop in Las Vegas, September 19-22, 2013. You can find out more about the workshop here:
