What is the best time to photograph the Milky Way?

How can I see the Milky Way tonight?
To see the Milky Way at night, you need all three of the following:
- a clear sky – there should be no clouds;
- minimal light pollution – too much extra light washes out the details in the night sky; and.
- no moon – the moon is brighter than you think and will reduce the visible intensity of the Milky Way.

How do photographers shoot stars?
To photograph the stars in the sky as pinpoints of light, start with as wide an f/stop as your lens allows, and shutter speed of about 20 seconds. Any more time than that and the stars will begin to blur. Increase the ISO as needed for a good exposure.
What is the NPF rule?
A much more complicated and accurate rule for sharp stars is: (35 x aperture + 30 x pixel pitch) ÷ focal length = shutter speed in seconds. Pixel pitch = the camera sensor’s physical width in millimeters ÷ number of pixels in width x 1000 to measure it in microns.
