Canyonlands, Arches etc
« on: August 08, 2018, 04:22:22 AM »

 I am planning a trip to Utah next years october.  Want to do some astrophotography also.
Looked at the moon at photopills and saw there is no moon at the beginning of the month and also at the end of the moon.
But will the Milky Way still be visible at the end of october?

According to the way I've read the photopills, I plan on shooting the Milky Way at Goblin State Park on October 8th at around 9:30 PM. Goblin is about 100 miles as the highway goes, to the south and west of Arches. When I looked, there were no camping spots available at Arches during that time frame.

A portion of the Milky Way is always visible.  At Arches during October the center might be at the horizon. Im not sure how much of it will show.  I think there are some websites and apps that might be used to figure that out.
