    Default Milky way and Solar Eclipse viewing questions for Argentina July 2019



    Just saw my first total eclipse yesterday and took some amazing images of it. And now I am hooked to see the next one. I am thinking of going to to the salt flats to view it.

    So here is my question. If the moon phas has no moon at that time or the moon is not up at the hours the milky way passes over. How is it for viewing the Milky way in early July?

    I tried googling the best time to view in latin america and argentina and could not find anything. Which was crazy strange.

    Also the equipment I will be using is D7200/D750. Wide angle at night. and my 200mm during the solar eclipse. I may rent a longer lens, but a 200 on the crop sensor put me in a good distance to it. I might try to get a 400.

    Have you tried using Stellarium and updating the place and then fast forward the time to the date you wanted to look at?

    Welcome to the forum.

    Well, you know exactly where the Moon is on eclipse day: it is in front of the Sun. So no moon at night, which means good Milky Way viewing.

    The Milky Way will be almost directly overhead. The brightest area is Sagittarius and Scorpio, which that far south will be close to the zenith. If you are observing from a dark location you wont need to look for it. It will probably be bright enough to cast a faint shadow

    Thank you. That's why I'm seeing now with stellarium.

    Now I have moved on to seeing where I want fly into and traveling around. Seems hard to find a rental that will let me go across borders.
