It sure is Chris, I had to drive about 10 miles west of my place to get to a point where it was that good. From my place I can't get much but sky glow in that direction. If it weren't so bad here at home I could put the camera on the cg5 and let it track while capturing the milkyway and that would be awesome. Oh well at least I was able to capture some of it with the wide angle lens. Thanks for the comment.
