You have to options:

1. With a tilt-shift lens you cant tilt the plane of focus to achieve an effect like this.
2. You take one in focus frame and one a bit out of focus and combine them in photoshop.

But after all, he really is a magician :)

I know that feel bro. Its always when i go out shooting and just have scratched a lens' body or bumped my camera against a wall and then i come home with amazing shots i feel happy and at the same time mad. Thinking like "was this shot worth it?" lol

But really, very nice image. Im so envious to all of you, here in switzerland you never see the galactic center of the MW like in your pictures. tried to get a usable MW image but never got anything usable :(

Thanks man, I appreciate the support! I really am loving this time of year for MW photos. In the middle of summer, you get the best view, and the nicest weather, but it's not really dark enough to shoot until like 11:00pm. This time of year you still get decent weather, almost as good of view, and it gets dark at like 8:00. I was about 40 minutes from my house, and was still home by just after 10:00pm!

I really love my 14mm 2.8, but more and more I'm starting to use my Sigma 35 Art. Sure you don't get as wide, and if you're doing a pano (such as this one) it takes more shots and more processing...but the amount of detail there just dominates.

Beautiful shot Mike! How is it that the milky way arches in many of your shots? When ever i shoot the milky way it is just a vertical strip.

I'm speaking on behalf of Mikey here, but it is because he is in New Zealand. Depending on where you are on the earth, the Milky Way is in different orientations at different times of the year. Early in the spring, I can do Horizontal Milky Way panos like Mikey's above, but this time of year, mine are pretty vertical as well (like in my post directly above yours).

Pretty much what David said above :) simpler way to explain it:

Southern Hemisphere:
Milky Way rises vertical and sets horizontal

Northern Hemisphere:
Milky Way rises horizontal and sets vertical

I'm not nearly as good as some of the people on here but there's so much in here for inspiration. Here is my first attempt at milky way shots. Got the opportunity to go out to the Figueroa Mountain Farmhouse in Los Olivos, CA for a few days so had to give it a shot. Super fun genre so I will definitely keep practicing!
