3 tracked images for noise reduction
1 non-tracked image for foreground trees

Goodness gracious, adult life is a hell of a thing :faint: Affords you so many opportunities to go and photograph whatever the heck you want, but provides very little time to actually process and share those images! =D Here's a shot from a couple weeks ago on a trip scouting fall color locations. Ventured into a part of the Black Hills I had never been to before and was pleasantly surprised, both with the trees as well as the quality dark skies. A little different from my usual stuff, but hope you enjoy this image as much as I enjoyed staring at the stars while creating it! :aww: Now, back to a couple house projects I need to get done before this weekend :P

Please tell me what you think! :dance:

An impressive rectilinear night sky shot! Not only the image includes foreground objects to add interest, but they circle the center from all sides. Makes this more interesting than a shot divided by earth and sky.


How long exposures did you use for the tracked images?

So awesomeee.... great work! :D

The trees point to the middle, which draws the person's eye to the sky. :D Great composition tactics!

That was the strategy! Had to amble around the campground a bit to find just the right "frame" trees =D
