Tangmangaroo Milky Way

Tangmangaroo Milky Way

The old Tangmangaroo Church is located in an isolated spot along the Lachlan Valley Way between Yass and Boorowa, NSW. A Bortle Class 2 location, this old church and graveyard have a south-westerly aspect making for a great Milky Way shoot late in the MW Core season.

I like that this spot is just off the main road, making it a safe spot for parking and shooting at night. You have to time your images—particularly long exposures—for gaps between vehicles (particularly northbound ones) coming along the road with high beams on.

I plan to go back a little earlier in the MW Core season next year and pick a couple of different angles.
