For the most part, the Milky Way is likely to be too high overhead to capture more of these types of Milky Way panorama shots this year, but I'm looking forward to next year!
On the other hand, during our Bodie workshops on August 15, October 11, and 12, although the Milky Way will intersect with the horizon in a fairly vertical fashion, on August 15 the bright galactic center doesn't set until after we leave the park at 1 am.
On October 11 and 12, we should have a good couple of hours of shooting the Milky Way before the galactic center sets. With the earlier fall sunsets before 6:30, we'll have a lot of additional hours for light painting and star trails as well.
In the past I mainly looked at photos from past years to estimate Milky Way times, but I'm testing an app which represents the orientation of the Milky Way over a map, so photographers can plan their night shoots, noting the rise and set time of the galactic center. I'll try to get a review out this week on my Blogger blog at www.MyPhotoGuides.com.
