I'm always amazed to see the photos in this thread. I need to make a trip out to the desert sometime soon :-)

Having just joined this well-established forum I thought that I would throw an image into the melting pot to contribute something. So here is a lucky shot that I captured while setting up for the shot I wanted to try and capture. Comments or Criticism is welcomed as I know there are some top people here and for one I always look to improve.

Sweet! That must be a huge image! Curious why you needed to stack 35 images for each frame?

This is a five-image panorama of the Milky Way across Sylvan Lake in Custer State Park, SD, taken at 20mm on a Nikon D750, using a nodal rail to prevent parallax issues.

No. I stacked 5 shots for each frame. After all were stacked I then stitched.

How far away should I be from society to get a shot like this? And is it possible in Southern California?
