21-05-18 - Milky Way over Ogsten Reservoir

Recommended Posts

That looks amazing, despite the orange beacon and LP. The milky way is all there in great detail. We have had twilight all night recently so it doesn't really get dark, which just makes your image even more impressive. Also it is nice to see landscape and the reservoir in view. 👍

Well played Kev, it's a lovely composition, just a shame about the LP.

Great stuff Kev! Really impressive, you should be really pleased. You mention 60 lights - what exposure/ISO were those, and was this done recently, if so you must have been up really late!

Thanks folks.

 

The thought did momentarily cross my mind of "should I bother?" after I arrived and took a look up at the sky at 12:45am.

 

Glad I did, of course, after the fact. 

 

ISO and sub length was 1600 and 60 seconds, Dave. Any longer blew out the exposure on the histogram, sadly.

 

I packed up around 3:30ish or there abouts. Had the local creatures of the night singing to me, so never a dull moment. 🙂

Thanks. Apart from my spelling in the title, that is.
