We were camping at Chumathang, enroute to Hanle (Hanle has the 2nd highest observatory in the world and the clearest skies). Chumathang, owing to its very remote location, has very little pollution and few lights in town. This makes it perfect for star gazing. I lit up our kitchen tent with a torch and set the camera on a tripod.
