Getting good at that huh...

I need a new lens I think...something with an f1.4 maybe...:D

A 14mm ƒ1.4 would be epic... :D
From tonight :) it's not perfect but I'm happy with it.

Here is a shot of the Milky Way over the Mackinac Bridge that connects the two peninsulas of Michigan. Shot from the north side at Straits State Park in St. Ignace, MI

Nice capture, in the state parks here in Florida you are not allowed in after sunset. Wish I did have access to these areas.

Find out if they give, for a fee, star gazers permit. In NY you have to pay a permit that registers your car before you can enter the park at night.

I didn't mention it but many (most?) state parks in Michigan have campgrounds as part of the park. I shot this (and others on Flickr) from our personal campsite! I also got a late-night shot at Tahquamenon Falls State Park while camping there... The "attractions" (um, waterfalls!) are officially closed at 10pm but there are no gates or barriers and rangers we have encountered aren't too concerned.

Here's a link to that photo... https://photography-on-the.net …/showthread.php​?t=1332751

Okay that makes sense, the parks by me don't have camp grounds.

Worth a shot, thanks.

My first attempt at shooting the Milkyway, Sept. 28, 2013, Colorado National Monument at Artists Point. About one hour after sunset (still a bit of evening glow in the lower right corner).

The bright orange horizontal is from headlights illuminating the road cut wall of Rim Rock Drive across the canyon. The lower right is my feeble attempt to use a single pocket LED light to illuminate the nearest rock feature.

Taken with 60D, ISO 3200, 20 seconds; Tamron 10-24mm @10mm, f/3.5, tripod and cabled remote. Post process in Lightroom 4 and The GIMP.

Regards,
GEWB

Nice capture with the bridge! My late father-in-law worked to build that bridge.
