Detailed information on the images is included in the images themself. I took the photos from Nieder-Olm, my home, in our garden. The location is about 200m above sea level and the Rhine-Main area, a usual very smoggy area and therefore not so dark during nights. Protected from the trees of our garden (seeable in the image), I could prevent any light of street lamps falling into the camera lens. The images are taken without any compensation of earth rotation, so the tracks of the stars behind is present.
