    White Pocket Milky Way

    The road to get there was one of the worst I've ever been on. But the place itself was incredible to see. Amazing formations in every direction, and the stars did not disappoint.

    Very nice! We went up north again last night hoping to get some pictures but the sky was full of smoke from the various wildfires burning in the State.

    We encountered a bit of it as well, but thankfully had two relatively clear nights. The airglow was excellent both nights as well, and the greens really popped. Just hot hot hot. Hope your trip went well apart from the smoke!

    Thanks Krystle, it's a really wild place, and had a blast shooting out there...once the sun went down and temps dropped below 1,000 degrees! ;)

    I have to ask. Are you using a full spectrum modified DSLR?
    Most astrophotographers seem to be doing this now.
    Great image, BTW.
    I bend light. That is what I do.

    Hey Buddy - thanks! In this case - nope. Just a standard Canon 5D Mk III, with a Sigma 24mm Art prime lens. Trying to remember the rest of the exposure details off hand here. I *think* this one was 13 seconds, iso somewhere around 4 or 5,000, and f/3.2. One exposure for the foreground, and then blended three or four for the sky to try and combat some noise.

    I've never been tempted to astro mod (rip out the IR filter) in my camera...at least not yet. If I did a lot more deep sky, and hydrogen nebulae in particular, I might give it more consideration. But as I use the same camera for loads of wildlife, aviation, and flora images as well, I'm happy with the color of the un-modded sensor.
