Sorry Samsen but our local Aborigines have been calling it the emu for 40,000 years give or take a few :)
It's part of their dreamtime legends

Here's Kiwi we refer to :)

Finally got a clear night in a dark place...

That is very nice. Now next night that it gets cloudy, you can enjoy time spending on post processing and right enhance of this wonderful image.

I guess now I can see a wingly challenged penguin! (Wing traded for excess Beak)



Thanks Desertraptor;
Now you officially and significantly Lowered my knowledge...., "Below the Equator!!;) And taught me things I never knew.
Never could imagine that emu.

permitted to share and use, at Wiki so I will insert direct link: here is the Emu for others to see if you wrongly didn't believe Desertraptor! But must admit there is something about your avatar that calls not to believe:)

And as for aborigines, now you need to go and tell them not call our little alien friend, emu! or he may get angry....And during dark beautiful lonely nights of Southern hemisphere, they better watch walking under milky way:P

But then if they said it for 40,000 years, I doubt if anyone of them believes you. Any how its now your problem but mine is to prove to you that there is an alien in your milky way, one angry one... Well,Can't help if you not believing me and I had no image of southern hemisphere from my own to prove it. But I do see Mickey's Edit is OK and I feel enough friend with Mickey to utilize benefit of his image to prove my point here (So Mickey if by any means you don't see it appropriate please just say the word and will be removed immediately).
See if you don't agree with me now that this is the little green angry alien with big head, very angry eyes one Blue the other Pink; your call him emu?!!!

I haven't posted in a while, but here's two photos from a fishing session last night. There was quite a bit of light pollution to work around. The second photo the colors were off so I just went with a black and white.

Thank you...I've been poking around on-line, and have found almost as many techniques as there are night photographers. ?!

Better - or too much?

QUOTED IMAGE

Wow Moose.
Difference is Day and night and I am very glad you did this step, indeed so successfully.
Image shines now.
Especially like the first image.
Not only the well shown beauty of MW in terms of brightness, color saturation, details, but now that complementary background silhouette really has synergistic effect on aesthetics of the image.

Its time to print and head for that right wall.
Great job and keep up you excellent work.

This is my first try at this. We were staying on the edge of Gatlinburg right outside Great Smoky Mountain National Park and I noticed I could see the milky way (don't get to see that around Atlanta). So I took a few shots from our hotel balcony.
