I find most single exposures (with the 6D) have incredibly little noise to start with :) One thing I do notice with median stacking wide angle MW shots, is you lose a lot of sharpness. And if your lens has a lot of distortion or coma in the corners, you end up with trails there too :)

That's odd, I don't find that to be true at all. If I'm stacking I shoot 10" exposures at iso10k or 12,800 and because I need to do no NR after stacking, the end result is much sharper, and no trailing even when printed large. Maybe I'm just more picky, because I had the 6d before switching to the d750 and even though the 750 performs significantly better at high ISO I still prefer to stack and have as little noise as possible

Stacking works by averaging the pixel information, therefore creating originally sharp stars a touch more blurry, like my example below. Making it sharp again is easy though.

For deep sky, stacking works wonders :) but for astroscapes, personally I prefer to get the shot in one exposure (*sigh, purist haha).

This is from Porkkalanniemi, Finland. It was a bit challenging though as lot of dew was forming on the lens. Canon 6D, ISO 6400, 120sec, Samyang 14mm@ f/2.8

Finally got out to shoot a timelapse of this old rusty cadillac on a clear sky night. It did not disappoint.

Here's the timelapse:

I'm not totally satisfied with the post on this one, but my 14mm Rokinon had fogged up by that point, so I had to make do with the 16-35 f/4 and push the ISO to 12,800:

Very nice TL, I also noticed an occasional reflection (of airplanes?) in the window at the top of the barn

A composite of shots I took. The Milky Way in Clevedon, Auckland and a shot of Caesers Palace I took in Las Vegas.

I've seen a couple of composites like this and thought I'd give it a try.

Well done. What program did you use for the compositing?
