OK, Poof (the she-boss) tells me we are headed to Utah in either June or July.
Should I pack the Rokinon 14mm ????
and do you want to give lessons ;)
I'll double check with her but I think she said we're camping at Natural Bridges Nat. Mon.

You should absolutely pack the 14mm if that's your main astro lens. Natural Bridges is an incredibly dark area, I think it's a international dark site actually. Heh, wish I could say I'd be available to give lessons, June is a really bad month for me, every weekend I've already got plans. I have no idea what I'm doing in July yet, I will say though that the area gets EXTREMELY hot that time of year, expect temperatures to be 100+ during the day so drink lots of water and don't over-exert yourself. I did Arches last July and while I had a good time I definitely pushed it quite hard going out day and night to shoot.

Wow! This is crazily detailed! I love how all nebulas are perfectly visible and give a very good feelfor the dimensions and layers! Thank you very much for postingthat!

Thanks, I can't wait to try more of this the rest of the Milky Way season. I only wish I had gotten a little higher and managed to get Comet LINEAR in the shot. It's fun to stack images like this, that little nifty 50 lens does quite well for itself in the mid-range of zoom.

You're editing and photoshop skills are as awesome as you ideas and camera skills. I wish I had your skills.

Last year was the big learning curve for me with imaging and editing, I read and practiced as much as I possibly could, even went back and re-edited shots over and over to practice different techniques and processing ideas. This year I've dedicated myself to really composing the best shots possible, trying to get a "quality over quantity" type of thing going. This was a really fun trip, I didn't get everything done that I wanted so I might try and go back either in May or July if I can get a free weekend. As for the skills and what-not, just gotta practice and read as much as possible and look at other people's work to get your mind thinking about what kind of shots you want to compose and how to edit them. The idea for this shot with the 50mm and 24mm lens composition came about after I saw some shots from Martin Campbell on twitter (https://www.flickr.com​/photos/57784643@N03/ (external link)) where he composited tracked shots of the Milky Way core with foreground shots of mountains taken with a zoom lens. It's just a matter of getting up the motivation to go out and spend long nights behind your camera, the more you shoot the more you learn.

Whoa! That's really cool, I don't think a photo of mine has been featured on a website before, thanks for finding that!

I realised I take a lot of my milkyway photos at the same location so I thought I'd try something different for a change. Pretty happy with how it turned out!

Move the zoom ring? How'd you do it? Good work.

Cheers mate! Yeah that was pretty much all I had done lol. I let the camera sit for around 10-15 seconds at 11mm then just moved the zoom back and forth for the rest of the exposure.

First time seeing a shot like this. Half of me believes that you adjusted the zoom during the exposure.... and the other half of me thinks you own a Millennium Falcon.

Probably light from the busy Columbia River Highway (I-84) that runs right there (you can see it on the left side of the image) and the small town across the river. Used to love hiking in that area when I lived in Portland, the Gorge is an awesome place.

You are correct, it was from I-84 traffic but even more so from a train whose tracks follow I-84
