I really enjoy the grandeur of Milky Way photos. But I've never had the opportunity to actually see anything like that in real life. Maybe I need to visit Kamloops
Well, an astro tracked image shows a whole heck of a lot more detail than the human eye can with the simple fact that the camera gathers far more light over a much longer period of time and at much higher sensitivities than the human eye can. So, the Milky Way would never really look like this in person. Maybe from a really dark sky it might look close, but you'd need to be in a bortle zone 0 for that I think. I was in a zone 3.
