Description: during a deep sky –observing session, I was able to observe the zodiacal light again, but this time I was better equipped! I had a camera and tripod with me, and I was able to photograph the phenomena this time!

Also this time the light was visible in the NW sky as a faint, southwards tilted, diffuse glow of light that was following the line of the ecliptic. The light was best visible with averted vision and sweeping. The phenomena and observing conditions were similar than last time.
