While on the Vineyard during the summer of 2014 I'd shot the four lighthouses on the main island but couldn't get to Chappaqquiddick to capture the Cape Poge light. I took advantage of a great stretch of later summer weather to head there, and it's not easy to get to. One has to first get to Chappy, then drive five miles over the beach to reach the lighthouse. Fortunately, it's so far out that there was little light pollution as the Milky Way made an appearance.
