13897397 - The summer Milky Way overhead and through the Summer Triangle stars in July, looking up through trees in Banff National Park at Herbert Lake. Deneb is at top left, Vega at top right, and Altair is at bottom. The bright Cygnus star cloud is obvious. As are the dark lanes in the Milky Way, including the Funnel Nebula at top, aka Le Gentil 3.
13900446 - A framing of northern Aquila and the Milky Way near Altair, the bright blue-white star at left. Above is yellowish Tarazed, below is dimmer Alshain. To the right of Tarazed are the dark nebulas Barnard 142 and 143, aka Barnard's E.
13900127 - The summer Milky Way to the southwest over Victoria Glacier and Lake Louise in Banff National Park, Alberta on a moonless night, August 29, 2016. The bright star at top is Altair, with the stars of Aquila being the main constellation here, with the Scutum starcloud just over the glacier and the stars of Ophiuchus to the right. The Serpens-Ophiuchus Double Cluster is prominent here just to the right of the Milky Way.
13899644 - The constellation of Aquila (at centre) surrounded by Scutum and its starcloud (below) and Serpens and Ophiuchus (at right to the west). Altair is the bright star left of centre, with Tarazed above it. Albireo in Cygnus is at the very top
13900142 - The summer Milky Way in Cygnus, with the Summer Triangle stars rising over the Hoodoos formations on Highway 10 near Drumheller, Alberta. A low-level aurora display tints the sky magenta and blue at left, making for an unusually colourful sky. The bright stars are: Vega is at top, Deneb at centre and Altair at bottom right.
13898860 - The summer Milky Way overhead and through the Summer Triangle stars in July, looking up through trees in Banff National Park at Herbert Lake. Deneb is at top left, Vega at top right, and Altair is at bottom. The bright Cygnus star cloud is obvious. As are the dark lanes in the Milky Way.
13900344 - A framing of the Milky Way from Altair in Aquila at bottom up to Albireo in Cygnus at top. The prominent dark nebulas B142 and B143, aka Barnard's E, are right of yellowish Tarazed above Altair. The constellation of Sagitta the Arrow is at centre, and to the right of Sagitta in the dark dust lanes is the Coathanger asterism, aka Collinder 399. Above Sagitta is the green disk of the Dumbbell Nebula, Messier 27, in Vulpecula the Fox. Above it, at upper left is the star cluster NGC 6885. And as a bonus, one of the stars in Sagitta is actually the globular cluster Messier 71.
13897825 - The Milky Way over the distant Prince of Wales Hotel from Driftwood Beach, in Waterton Lakes National Park, September 24, 2016. Being at the end of the season, the hotel is closed and dark. The bright star at centre is Altair in Aquila.
13900239 - The constellation of Aquila the Eagle with the small constellation of Scutum the Shield below, with its bright starcloud, in the northern summer sky, with parts of Serpens and Ophiuchus at right. The Serpens-Ophiuchus Double Cluster is at right, made of NGC 6633 (right) and IC 4756 (left). Altair is the bright star at left.
13898985 - A framing of the field around the bright white star Altair (lower left), and the orange giant star Tarazed above, with the dark nebula complex B142 (lower dark lane) and B143 (the top pair of dark lanes), together known as Barnard's E. These are all in Aquila.
13898004 - Badlands formations in Dinosaur Provincial Park lit by the light from the July 2022 "supermoon" Full Moon off frame at right and behind the hill, on a very clear night. The stars of the northern sky are set in a deep blue sky. Arcturus is at far left; the Big Dipper is at left (distorted somewhat by the panorama projection); Polaris is left of centre at top; Cassiopeia is right of center; Andromeda and Pegasus are below the W of Cassiopeia, and at far right is the star Altair.
13827938 - View of the top of Monte Chiusarella with the cross and rocks altair, varesine prealps, Parco Regionale del Campo dei Fiori, Varese district, Lombardy, Italy.
70500941 - 'On board Altair during ''Les voiles de saint Tropez'', France. Commissioned in 1929 by Captain Guy H MacCaw whose brief to William Fife was simply: 'build a sound, safe cruiser, safe to go to the south seas islands in with no anxiety'. Fife was then 73

13898290 - The summer Milky Way over and reflected in the relatively calm water of Pyramid Lake in Jasper National Park, on a mid-October night. The Jasper Sky Tram adds the lights on Whistler Peak. Bands of airglow tint the sky with red. Lights from the Jasper townsite, still mostly unshielded sodium vapour lights as of 2022, add the skyglow at left. Altair is the bright star at top. The red Lagoon Nebula is just setting behind the mountain skyline. The slight wind rippled the water enough to prevent a perfect reflection.
13899140 - Reflections of the Northern Lights in the calm and misty waters of Madeline Lake on the Ingraham Trail near Yellowknife, NWT on Sept 7, 2019. This is one of a series of “reflection” images. Altair is at left.
13897971 - Galaxy and glacier! This is a vertical panorama of the Milky Way Galaxy over Lake Louise and Victoria Glacier in Banff National Park, Alberta. The Summer Triangle stars of Vega, Deneb and Altair are at centre. The Scutum Starcloud is just above and setting over Victoria Glacier. The dark lanes of interstellar dust — stardust! — weave among the bright star clouds of the Milky Way.
13897937 - A selfie of me shooting time-lapses and tracked Milky Way images at the 76 Ranch Corral site at Grasslands National Park, August 27, 2019. Taken for use as a book cover. High cloud and a dark aircraft contrail drifting through added the star glows and the dark streak. Jupiter, at right, and Saturn, at left, flank the Milky Way. Altair is the bright star at top.
13898068 - The centre of the Galaxy region in Sagittarius and Scorpius overhead in the wee hours of an April morning in Australia. At upper right are Alpha and Beta Centauri, while at lower left is Altair.
13897654 - This captures the vertical sweep of the summer Milky Way over the foreground landscape of Dinosaur Provincial Park, Alberta. The image serves as a good illustration of the richness of objects, dark dust lanes and bright starfields along the Milky Way, from Sagittarius low in the south at bottom, to Cygnus at top. In between are Aquila and Scutum, with part of Ophiuchus at right. This was from latitude 50.5° North, where Sagittarius and the galactic centre are low in sky. The Summer Triangle stars of Deneb, Vega and Altair are at top.

13898058 - The Milky Way from northern Sagittarius to southern Cygnus, above the mountains of Waterton Lakes National Park; Alberta, Aug 31, 2013. This is a stack of 4 x 3 minute exposures at f/2.8 with the 24mm lens and Canon 5D MkII at ISO 1600.
13899945 - The summer Milky Way with the Summer Triangle stars through pine trees, shot from the Howse Pass Viewpoint at Saskatchewan River Crossing, Banff National Park, Alberta. Jupiter is the bright object at the bottom.

13897607 - The summer Milky Way on a clear moonless September evening, from my rural backyard in southern Alberta. This is a stack of 5 x 5 minute exposures with the 15mm f/2.8 lens and Canon 5D MkII at ISO 800, on the iOptron SkyTracker. Portrait version.
13897591 - The summer Milky Way in portrait orientation over Herbert Lake and Mount Temple and peaks around Lake Louise, in Banff National Park, Alberta. Taken August 29, 2016.
13900189 - A wide-angle view of the Northern Hemisphere autumn Milky, from Aquila at bottom right in thw south, to Cassiopeia and Perseus at upper left in the northeast. Cygnus is at centre overhead on a late October evening. The Summer Triangle stars are at centre and right; the Andromeda Galaxy and Triangulum galaxies are at bottom left. The dark nebula Le Gentil 3, aka the Funnel Nebula, is at centre.
13898902 - The Milky Way over the old corral at the site of the 76 Ranch in the Frenchman Valley in Grasslands National Park, Saskatchewan. I shot this Aug 26 on a perfect night, with aurora beginning to kick up but still low in brightness when I shot this so the sky was dark. The foreground is lit by starlight, by the aurora brightening in the north, and by the occasional flashes of spotlights from naturalists down the valley spotting for nocturnal ferrets. The green bands in the sky are from natural airglow.
