Ventured out to catch the Neowise comet, but failed to find it due to heavy dust-filled inversion layer way up the horizon.
Instead, stayed a bit longer and took some captures of the Milky Way over the sand dunes.

Technically very good but the chair takes the impact out of it.

Thank you for your comment. I am not sure my son would appreciate it though.

I just took another attempt with the stacking technique and must admit I am quite astonished by the results.
Simple, 5 image stacking produced so much cleaner results to standard noise reduction.

I've been thinking of getting Stary Landscape Stacker, is it easy to use?

Starry Landscape Stacker is Mac only and it is not free. Sequator is a PC only program, which I believe is free.

This was my camp site in Karijini, WA last week.

It's been a while since I've done a full pano of the Milky Way and I made some mistakes lighting the foreground which made blending and stitching a nightmare so I had to go with a silhouette :-)

Here's another from Karijini. I really wanted to re-shoot this to do the foreground properly but never got around to it.

This is a blend of about 8 frames with different elements lit in each one. It was tricky to get light onto the far side of the gorge and getting definition without casting shadows from trees and rocks (or falling over the cliff lol) I can't say I didn't enjoy it though :-)

The glow is most likely from a distant iron ore mine.

Yes, very much so and the results are spectacular.
There is a very nice video on how to use it by Lonely Speck astro guy: https://www.youtube.co​m/watch?v=YqVSxYtV2-o (external link)

I really must try Sequator again, that's a really handy video and I think it should sort out the issues I had with it.

I have so many multiple sky exposures when I've been trying to sort out my foreground shots... Got to be worth a try.

The clouds parted long enough for me to capture this photo.
