Being a Bortle 2 dark sky site, Tioman is easily one of best places for astrophotography in the South East Asian region. It was so clear that the dustlanes of the milkyway galaxy was visible to the naked eye! (Think of Gaussian Blur and a desaturated image: that's what you can actually see in reality). In this picture, one can make out the Cat's Paw Nebula, Lobster Nebula, Omega Nebula and Jupiter, the brightest 'star' in the picture (Disclaimer: Jupiter is not a star!)
