Catskills N.Y. Castle and Milky Way Photography
The Catskill Mountains or the Catskills are a large area in the southeastern portion of the U.S. state of New York. They are located approximately 100 miles (160 km) north-northwest of New York City and 40 miles (60 km) southwest of Albany.
The Catskill Mountains contain some of the darkest skies on the east coast. At this castle when we turned our flashlights off we could not see a thing! We literally could not see our hand in front of our face. If you don’t already know, you need dark skies to be able to see and photograph the milky way at night. Go to our other pages on milky way photography more details and resources. Make sure you check out the dark sky map. For Information and resources – Go to Dark Sky Photography Info. For information on how to do night sky photography go here.
DON’T go to this castle alone! – We highly recommend you do not go here by yourself. There are entities here for sure! Check out our new Ghost Hunting Photography Section in October. This trip inspired the new section. I assure you, we were not alone!
