The Milky Way over Greece, Aristarchos Telescope

The Milky Way over Aristarchos Telescope at the top of Chelmos Mountain in Achaia, Kalavryta, Greece, at an altitude of 2340m/7677ft. I took this shot in a moonless night (new moon) on July 18th, 2012, at midnight. The location has been measured as one of the darkest areas both in Greece and in Europe.
