Fantastic!!

The same for me, I've been out twice this week and the weather has done me both times, I only have a half hour drive on a motorbike though, can't wait for the weather to settle down, I have a samyang 14mm that needs a run out!


Please don't hesitate to educate others regarding the NEED to stop light pollution.
We are going to see a lot more of it in logarithmic proportion, if nothing is done.
Its not that hard to either point the night fixtures toward the earth or have a top cover that stops upward leak of light, to say the least and hope this becomes a mandatory code for all buildings around the civilized world.
Wish you all Dark, Cloudless nights.

Mickey; Its time to make some serious talk with Samyang. I am sure they would be honored to use your work in promoting their valuable gears. And may I repeat for a thousand &one time; Please don't feel shy. You need to promote yourself and there is nothing wrong with that.

I actually emailed them last summer after I got back from this trip, saying thanks for making great products and sent the image along too. I agree that you should try and get in touch with Rokinon/Samyang/whatev​er. I need to pick up a 24 1.4...

Here's a panorama I created from my trip to the Eastern Sierra over the weekend. Had to downsize it a bit (okay, a LOT!) to hit the forum size requirements and it ended up a little lighter than the original. This was created using 4 vertical shots stitched together with Microsoft ICE and then lightly edited in Lightroom.

I finally got a clear night in hatteras to photograph the lighthouse and the milky way. I have a bunch of editing to do and I'm hoping 1 or 2 big panoramas turn out but I wanted to share a quick edit of a single frame.

Thanks. I lucked out with a cold morning and high winds, that kept everyone at home. Soon enough it'll be beach season with heavy traffic and much more light pollution down in hatteras.

Amazing images in this thread!
I got my 14mm Samyang lens back at Christmas and got these in the garden and park behind my house.

How do you all deal with noise at such high ISO without the image quality suffering?

I will be hoping to get to some dark areas later this year for some more good shots.

Not really much milky way happening here, but I'm sure some or most of these stars are in it anyway?

An old lighthouse no longer in use on the shore of Cape Cod. We went down here scouting a potential workshop location and it was awesome!

You are right. Only if they were closer to use as we are part of milky way and these are far far away, may be much bigger.

I'm not totally sure what you're asking here, so I may be saying something you already know. Every single star that is visible from earth is in our Milky Way galaxy, but the common term "Milky Way" normally refers to the band of gas, dust and stars that we can see across the sky at certain times of the year. That is the main disk section of the galaxy, where things are much more densely packed from our POV. Not every star in the sky is part of the Milky Way by that definition.

Not quite. The Andromeda Galaxy is 2.5 million light years away, but is visible in the night sky in the Andromeda constellation as a hazy patch of light about the size of the full moon.
The Large Magellanic Cloud and the Small Magellanic Cloud are 2 smaller satellite galaxies of our own Milky Way, and are visible in the southern hemisphere

(I didnt actually know that until 2 mins ago)
