Armed with his camera and flashlights, he reveals his successful expedition to capture the Milky Way. “The place was so quiet, so serene and so dark ... We were so lucky because a thousand stars showed up on that night.” Allan tells CNN. “It was a perfect night together with friends.”
    - lmoorhouse, CNN iReport producer

    This is my first time to shoot the Milky Way and it happened in my hometown in Caramoan. Our camera club members went to one of the ports in Caramoan around 11pm. The place was so quiet, so serene and so dark. According to one of our members who shoot Milky Way a couple of times, it was a perfect time. We were so lucky because a thousand stars showed up that night. We brought flash and small flashlights to check our settings and a flash for the foreground. It was a perfect night together with friends who got a couple of shots from different angle and scenario of the place. We shot there until 2pm. We had to get back to our resort since we would be leaving early in the morning the next day going back to the mainland. It was fun and gave us so much excitement and will shoot more in the days to come.
