Earthshine and the Milky Way

I set my Polarie up this weekend out at the Witte Observatory for some shots of the Moon and Milkyway.

I am fascinated how the Moon can show display what is know as "Earth Shine," most predominant when it is in its crescent phase.

Then I turned my attention to the Milky Way, starting with the region near Perseus.  (I've got my fingers crossed this region of the sky will be "hopping" with meteors we can see next weekend!

I think it's especially "fun" that we can see the Double Cluster and Andromeda Galaxy in these images. =)
