The Milky Way

Wed, Sept 28, 2016

Last night was a cool one with crystal clear skies and a bright Milky Way.  So I thought I’d take a stab at it.

I’m using a Nikon D800 camera and Nikon 14-24 zoom lens. This picture was shot at 14mm, ISO 1600 and exposed for 30 secs.  I use Adobe Lightroom to process my shots and I’ll be the first to admit that I’m not very good at it.

Here’s the shot straight out of the camera.  Not much there, eh?

And here’s the shot after processing.  It’s a bit cartoonish but was fun doing it (the bright spot in the lower right was a neighboring town).
