@astromax because at polar regions seasons really matters (you won't see any star all over the summer). Can you maybe link or post the same picture for the different seasons? That would be great!

Ok, yes, like I did! So it does contradict Micheal, the Milky Way looks high in the sky.. Hum...

@astromax does that picture change among seasons?

I was inclined to think the same, but for what the pictures of @astromax and Arne it seems it not so low. Or am I wrong?

Can you help me to read the map? I am not use to it. What I intuitively understand is that Milky Way is cutting the sky from North-East to South-West, right? So the difference with lower latitudes is that it kind of rotates instead of passing twice per day. That seems to contradict Michael post.. Would you say polar regions are good to observe the Milky way?
