If you check Max Wolfs' photograph against a contemporary image taken in Southern Brandenburg you see that
this region prevents the astronomical conditions which were common 100 years ago. Please note that the
modern image was nearly not modified by help of computers. It reflects the potential of the HTTs’ sky.
In Central Europe you find outside of the Alpes such favourable conditions only in some regions of Brandenburg,
Mecklenburg and Poland. Here you have the chance to see and photograph the subtle glow of the Milky Ways’
border. In other regions you can only bring out the bright central regions of our galaxy.
Please look in the bottom third of the image after this fine glow. [more Infos
