September 2000: The Gegenschein

26 September 2000, 21:00-21:40 UT (40 min exposure), f=16mm f/2.8 (fish-eye photo, diagonal = 180°), Elite 400, from «Crocetta» (covering the sky in the upper left corner), Stromboli. The summer Milky Way spans from Aquila up to the Perseus Double Cluster. On the lower left tourists descend the volcano after an evening trip with the local guides. Three red paths of airplanes cross Cygnus, Lyra and Vulpecula (this is the only defect of Stromboli's night sky...).
