Here are some images from my Night Sky Photo Tours in August. I was out three times and each night we were all able to get stunning images of the Milky Way.
These first two images are from Aug. 12th.
These next two images are from Aug. 13th, first from the Diablo Overlook and then from the Washington Pass Overlook. These images were taken as a part of the North Cascades Institute Class Night Sky Class. The next NCI NIght Sky Class is scheduled for Sept. 11th. Here is the link!
This link gives some basic info on whats needed to capture great Milky Way Images.
These next images were captured at the Park Butte Lookout on the south side of Mount Baker on Aug. 17th. Though it was 3 days after the New Moon the skies were still wonderful!
