Tag a friend who might enjoy this Milky Way image and journey!⁠ ---⁠ From JC about this image:⁠ ---⁠ Stacked/Blended⁠ ⁠ “The present rearranges the past. We never tell the story whole because a life isn't a story; it's a whole Milky Way of events and we are forever picking out constellations from it to fit who and where we are.”⁠ Last month on June 10th I saw an extremely clear sky around 2am. ⁠ I jumped in my suv and ended up almost an hour away at this location. ⁠ I had tried it here before, but had gotten rained on in the process. ⁠ I spent about 15-20 minutes gathering 15 shots for the sky and a 4 minute exposure for the foreground. ⁠ That was the easy part. ⁠ Then came blending these images together. ⁠ I’m a novice with @photoshop and I spent many nights figuring out how to mask and compose. ⁠ I truly have no idea how I was able to cut out the palms so crisp but was very pleased with the final result. ⁠ I value your comments and feedback on this image, which has to be my favorite to date. ⁠ Aloha. ⁠ instagram.com/oahujc⁠ ⁠ @sonyalpha a7rii ⁠ @venuslaowa 15mm F2 zero-d⁠ @nisifiltersus night filter⁠ @siruiusa tripod⁠ ⁠ Sky: 15 stacked images ⁠ F2 15s iso 2500 ⁠ using ⁠ Foreground: F2 240s iso 800⁠ -⁠ .⁠ .⁠ .⁠ .⁠ .⁠

Tag a friend who might enjoy this Milky Way image and journey!⁠ ---⁠ From Alexis about this image:⁠ ---⁠ Category: PANO⁠ ⁠ STORY: It was about 45 minutes looking for the correct position and the precise moment to record this scene, what I most thought was how to dodge the light of the fire so that it did not affect the long exposure photography of the sky since the rays of light were reflected a lot on the lens and with high ISO sensitivity meant to destroy the photo. Finally after several tests and ideas I managed to make this Panorama of 12 photographs.⁠ .⁠ A great honor to be part of this experience called "sitialdelfuego" with its exquisite dishes, learning about gastronomy and Andean cultures.⁠ ⁠ Instagram.com/ale_astrophotography⁠ ⁠ Exif: (PANO 12 frms)⁠ .⁠ Sky: 6 pics - 15 sec - ISO 1.600 - f2.8 - 16mm⁠ .⁠ People: 6 pics - 1 /4 - ISO 400 - f2.8 - 16mm .⁠ --⁠

Tag a friend who might enjoy this Milky Way image and journey!⁠ ---⁠ From Evan about this image:⁠ ---⁠ Blend, stack, pano⁠ ⁠ instagram.com/galactic_kiwi⁠ ⁠ I found this scene by doing some investigation in google street view, turned up and indeed it looked promising. The tree fern was a bit more ragged than I expected, perhaps there had been some storms. The unfortunate thing about using street view for this sort of thing is you are beside a road, and there were cars whizzing past which ruined many shots and got a bit close for comfort but with some persistence I got them all done.⁠ ⁠ Nikon D750/Sigma 40mm Art⁠ ⁠ Sky: f/1.4, 8 seconds, ISO 5000⁠ Ground: f/2, 60 seconds, ISO 5000⁠ --⁠ .⁠ .⁠ .⁠ .⁠ .⁠

Tag a friend who might enjoy this Milky Way image and journey!⁠ ---⁠ From Jason about this image:⁠ ---⁠ STACK⁠ ⁠ STORY: Taken at Tettegouche State Park (Lake Superior North Shore) in Minnesota at the end of June this year. For me this was a must for two reasons….1. Minnesota is my Home State, and 2. I’ve never photographed the Milky Way there. Ever since I saw pictures on Instagram of this famous rock formation covered in ice, with waves crashing around it, I had a dream of capturing this exact image...minus the cold of course.😁 With a family trip up that way, I planned a two night getaway at the State Park, and both nights ended up being Incredibly clear with no wind. I still can’t believe how calm Lake Superior was that second night when I captured this. After the first shot, I looked down at the live view on the back of my camera, and was blown away to see the reflection of the Milky Way on the largest freshwater lake in the world (by surface area). It was so dark out there, I had to go all the way to ISO 10000 to get catch the light and details that I did. There really is nothing better than being out in nature, besides being in nature under a night sky!⁠ ⁠ SOCIAL:⁠ ⁠ instagram.com/jsn_pdog/⁠ fb.com/jason.perry.96387189⁠ ⁠ ⁠ EXIF: Nikon D850 w/Nikkor 14-24mm lens. 14 shots stacked in SLS. 25 seconds at f/2.8, ISO 10000, 14mm.

Located 12 miles north of Glenwood, New Mexico, Cosmic Campground features one of the darkest night skies on earth and is the first International Dark Sky Sanctuary in North America (there are only 10 Sanctuaries worldwide). The distant horizon offers an unobstructed 360° view while the low hills surrounding the site help obstruct unnatural light.⁠ What a great night. The Milky Way was easily visible to the eye. I spent much more time stargazing than taking photos 🙂⁠ ⁠ EXIF: Nikon D810 + Sigma 20mm ⁠ 15 second exposure - f/1.4 - ISO 5000 ⁠ A couple seconds of iPhone light painting on the sign⁠ .⁠ .⁠ .⁠ .⁠ .⁠

Teide from Teide Observatory! The Danish SONG telescope can be seen in the foreground.⁠ It was really windy up in the mountains that night, so I had to shoot the sky from the ground (foreground was photographer from a tower), as the sky started to get blurry with the tracker already at 15 seconds!⁠ ⁠ Canon EOS 6Da + Samyang 24mm f/1.4 + iOptron skytracker⁠ 30-60 seconds, f/2, ISO 2500-3200, panorama⁠ -⁠

Tag a friend who might enjoy this Milky Way image and journey!⁠ ---⁠ From Gon about this image:⁠ --⁠ SINGLE/PANO⁠ ⁠ INSTAGRAM: www.instagram.com/gonlaserna⁠ ⁠ STORY: I'm discovering a different side of astrophotography since I started using my sigma 35mm, im totally for using wide angles like the samyang 14mm 2.8 I already own, but there is something different and challenging to use higher focal lengths like 35mm and above, I'm dreaming of some day soon getting my first tracker. This particular night we had a couple hours up the mountain near La Paz and while doing a timelapse I decided to do this pano, the arch was pretty high up in the sky at this point and the only way to capture both the antennas, the road and the core was to do a vertical PANO, this place is very representative of the fast changing altitudes of La Paz going from 5000 masl to around 2000 masl in less than 2 hours driving down the road on the lower left. ⁠ ⁠ EXIF: 11 single frames vertical PANO, A7iii + Sigma art 35mm 1.4 @ 1.6 13sec iso1600, stitched and preprocessed in LR and finished in PS.⁠ --⁠

Tag a friend who might enjoy this Milky Way image and journey!⁠ ---⁠ From Wisanu about this image:⁠ ---⁠ STACKED/BLEND⁠ Instagram:⁠ instagram.com/boonrawd_photography⁠ .⁠ This was shot from almost 2 weeks ago in Oregon. Made a quick stop here during the daytime to scout the location and check for milky way alignment. Then, returned to this place and had everything set up ready for the milky way after sunset. One base image for seastacks was captured during blue hour to maximize the detail of the seastacks, long exposure alone would not ideal for this completely dark location and it was difficult to light it up efficiently with the gears I had in hands. After taking the base image, the camera and tripod was kept at the same position throughout the shoot of that night.⁠ .⁠ This is actually not the final image that I planned for. I wanted the milky way to position a bit to the right of this frame which would better balance the composition. However, massive fog from Pacific Ocean rolled in before the milky way core moved to the right position. Anyway, not much to complain since it is better than getting nothing back from the trip.⁠ .⁠ D810, Nik 14-24 f/2.8G ED⁠ sky: 19mm iso10,000 f2.8 20sec x 8 shots (median stacked)⁠ The man standing: 19mm iso8000 f2.8 15sec x 7 shots (median stacked)⁠ Seastack: blue hour 19 mm iso200 f4 20sec⁠ --⁠ .⁠ .⁠ .⁠ .⁠ .⁠

Tag a friend who might enjoy this Milky Way image and journey!⁠ ---⁠ From Amanda about this image:⁠ ---⁠ Category: Single image⁠ ⁠ Story: Out in the Mojave, and minds and mentalities sitting proper, Nikki and I decided to climb the nearby hill. This hill, according to previous recon conducted by Nikki could be summited with just, "Three minutes to the top!" We started out. The night was dark. First Nikki lost her phone. Then the portable speaker. Then her pants. An hour later we arrived at the top, shredded. But we sat on the top of that hill, watched the vault rotate, and laughed and felt joy in the absurdity and humor of our silly, fleshy selves in the great, beautiful vastness. The Milky Way was so bright and I decided to set up my tripod to capture the galaxy rising up out of our chests. Soon thereafter the sun began to rise, so we made our way down and doubled our injuries. And if neither one of us sustained a permanent scar, then I'll have the light from that night digitally burnt into a sandisk to remember it by.⁠ ⁠ Instagram.com/mother.flower⁠ ⁠ Exif: Nikon D610, AF Nikkor 50mm f/1.8, f/1.8, ISO 1250, 30.0s. No additional light.⁠ ⁠ May I add, this group is so amazing, with the amount of skill required and knowledge of equipment necessary to achieve some of these photos; I’m truly humbled and inspired by you all. Thank you!⁠ -⁠

Angelo Perrone at LA PAJARA — REPOST: @angeloperroneph from facebook.com/groups/milkywaychasers chosen by @tracyleephotos — MWC Admin: @tracyleephotos --- to be featured or post on Facebook.com/groups/milkywaychasers. Tag a friend who might enjoy this Milky Way image and journey! --- From Angelo about this image: --- LA PAJARA TRACKED/BLEND SOCIAL FB: Angelo Perrone instagram.com/angeloperroneph HISTORY The pajare are particular constructions typical of Salento (Puglia, Italy). Considered typically rural houses built using the drywall technique, the Salento is really full. From a vaguely familiar aspect, reminiscent of the more well-known of the characteristic trulli of Alberobello, the pajare generally consist of a single environment that can vary depending on the size of the houses. From the rather uncertain and controversial history, the Salento pajare have, certainly, a decidedly ancient origin, presumably to be placed around the year 1000 after Christ, even if some historians, going much further, arrive to date them in an earlier age, between the 2000 BC and the end of the Bronze Age. Whatever the origin, however, the Salentine pajare fully identify with the surrounding landscape, adding a pinch of folklore to an already fascinating and evocative territory. Used by the farmers of Salento as a resting place after an intense day of work or to escape a sudden storm, the pajare often served as real summer homes, ideal for closely monitoring both the livestock and the most delicate crops .
