Hey Marlon, do you mind sharing your workflow on this shot? I've always wanted to try this. But I have always assumed I needed to buy one of those unit that follows the earth's rotation. Instead of long lens I want to use my 40mm pancake.
Tito Jun, white balance starts at 4300 Kelvin, a 25sec exposure on 17mm at ISO 2000. Mostly people use 500/Focal lenght=exposure to avoid star strails. Some goes 450 or 600 rule. I'm trying to find where it is best especially here in NJ there are too much light pollution. The stairs is illuminated by the way street lamp post. Yes I shoot this on the side of the road.IMAGE LINK: https://flic.kr/p/nuZj9g
A tracker is the best on getting exposure of the milky way cause you can go more than 1min exposure and at lower ISO. It's gonna be clean, sharp and mush details on stars, but the problem is the foreground will be blurry. It is best on longer lens. What others do on ultra wide lens is combining two exposures on Photoshop.
Here's before and after some feedback here on POTN, here's a modified one. I crop a little and warm it up a bit. Let me know what you think guys?
