Hello all. I have been an active viewer of this forum for several months and I have picked up many tips over the course of that time. I just recently took an interest in astrophotography, particularly milky way nightscapes. I just wanted to say thanks to everyone and provide a couple of images I have taken over the last month. These are stitched images of the lighthouse taken with a Canon 6d and Sigma 35mm. I believe the exposure for each was f1.4 at 15 seconds and ISO of 3200.

I still don't think my post processing is where I would like to be, so any critiques would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks again and I look forward to becoming an active member.

Both shots are great, I really like the second one!

Also, welcome to the forum! I see you haven't made "Image Editing OK", I respect if you don't want people to edit your photos, but I would kindly ask if I could work with these?

Thanks for all the positive comments. I'm fortunate that I live only about an hour from the lighthouse and dark skies.

very nice!!

i'm hoping to shoot bodie next month. i'm assuming access to the grounds is open all night? with the MW up that high in the 2nd one, it looks to have been shot pretty late?

and i also welcome an another tar heel. :)
