From the photographer: "In the quest for dark skies, astrophotographers Ajay Talwar, Vikrant Narang, Raghu Kalra traveled to IAO, Hanle, Ladakh in July, 2010. Every stargazer's endeavor is a quest for dark sky locations, far away from the light pollution of the city, and where the sky is studded with starry diamonds - where the heavenly river of the Milky Way is easily seen."
