This is a cropped version of an image showing the northern Milky Way running from Cassiopeia to Cygnus, taken on a very clear. dark night from a rural location in SW France, We are far enough south here to avoid the plague of all night twilight. Unfortunately my processing skills are not up to reducing the original image to the required 2MB maximum size so this is cropped mainly to show Cygnus and Lyra lying above it.
