all these shots are amazing!! living near NYC you can't really see the milky way.

I have a friend back home on Long Island who has shot it out at Montauk Point, including the lighthouse in the shots.

Does anybody have an recommendations for a light that would provide a dim, wide, and diffused beam. I have two headlamps, but even on their lowest power they are way too bright for high iso shots. This photo could have used a little light for the foreground.

A 430EX2 on a lightstand with an umbrella in manual mode with a 10m ETTL cord. If it's still too bright, then move the stand back away from the subject some. Or a flashlight with a Kleenex and you just do a quick light painting wave over the area that you want illuminated while the shutter is open.

Thanks for the suggestions. I've tried the headlamp with a kleenex and various plastics to diffuse, it works but I'd like a more consistent setup. I believe an off camera flash setup like you described would solve that problem. I am reluctant though because almost all of my astro shots are taken on National Park grounds and it gets into the grey area of permits once you start setting up lightstands, even as a hobbyist.

Went out to shoot some roadscapes with a friend last night. Great thing about living in NZ is having skies like this just a 15-minute drive outside town.

Canon 5D2 + Canon 16-35/2.8

Great shots Fuzz!

Out of curiosity who uses long exposure noise reduction within the camera for Milky Way shots?

Yes, NZ is a landscape/astro photographer's paradise.

Thanks. I personally don't use the in-camera noise reduction. I usually just do NR in Lightroom. But if I am doing serious astro shooting (like this (external link), this (external link), or this (external link)), then I'll shoot dark frames separately and subtract using DeepSkyStacker.

Thank you. Love your work as well (especially the recent Chicago shots).

Thank you. I can't wait for summer to come back, here in Europe. I can't wait to practice photographying the Milky Way again. :-)

Very nice.
Love that harmony created by matching color of stones, vegetation and dominant color of milky way.
