I stepped out of the car and let my eyes adjust, given the view that was presented to me, I was left speechless.
This is probably my favorite astro panorama I have ever taken. The fog and marine layer knocked out almost all of the light pollution creating some incredibly vivid stars. The Milky Way so very viable in person and was amazing to witness. This is a 12 image panorama taken from Mt Figueroa in Santa Ynez. The light on the horizon is glow from Los Angeles and Ventura county.
