Low Level Lighting (LLL) adds only about 0.008 lux surface illumination. This is slightly more than starlight alone and less than a quarter moon at 30 degrees elevation.

"Though my soul may set in darkness, it will rise in perfect light;

I have loved the stars too fondly to be fearful of the night."
—Sarah Williams

This is a single tracked exposure I took of the Milky Way in the Grand Tetons. Canon 5DM3, Rokinon 24mm, f/5.6, 110 sec, ISO 2000, mounted on a Vixen Polarie star tracker. A radial zoom filter was applied in post.
