Took at trip to La Palma for a week, and one of the reasons was to see the MW for the first time. I live in Belgium, so seeing the MW is a big no in this area where I live. I always wanted to try and capture it, so I decided to go to one of the best places I could think of in combination with a relaxing holiday, and it really was!

First time shooting the MW and first time PP'ing, so it's hardly gonna be perfect. I wanted to have some better foreground lighting, but my remote apparently died on me without me knowing it, so I had no real way of doing long exposures. :(

Love the atlantic ocean shot, would it be possible to do an ocean + mw reflection shot? That'd be sick too

I took these last month on the Greek island of Milos. I was lucky to be there during new moon, so the conditions were great!
You can see airglow (green tint in the lower left sky). The blue light on the right came from the beach bar.
The pink dot in the middle of the galaxy is the Lagoon nebula.

Taken with Sony A7II + Sony 28mm at f/2, ISO1600, 10 seconds. The first image is a 12 shot panorama.

Which composition do you prefer?

I like #1 because it shows the "vastness" of the heavens and the earth. Plus the motion blur of the boat is minimized in the first shot.

Both very awesome. Although I much prefer the second, the composition just sits a lot better to me plus the detail in the MW is more visible at typical viewing distance.

Well I went back out to the desert on Friday to take advantage of the black moon, the skies where mostly clear and the winds weren't nearly as bad this time. But I had to remove I think 4 or 5 airplanes from this shot, also forgive the awful coma for some stupid reason I forgot to shoot at f/2.8 or higher and ended up with a decent shot but I'm still slightly disappointed at myself. Anyways...

A couple from last Thursday night at Red Rock Canyon, east of Palmdale, CA. My only company on this night was a very vocal owl who interrogated me for two hours at sundown.
