Milky Way with bolide fireball over Lake Katherine, White Mountain National Forest, Piermont, NH. I caught it on a test exposure so not exactly where I would have wanted it but pretty thrilling nonetheless.

First Milkyway try. I still have a ton to learn about taking the pictures and post processing, but I ran out of clear sky.

A panorama taken at Wivenhoe Dam last night, featuring the Milky Way rising over the mirror-calm lake, with beautiful reflections of the southern Milky Way. I like the colours of the Southern Cross reflections, and the fact that the Coal Sack nebula is visible in the reflection! Shot with my 6D and Samyang 14mm lens.

Nice one! It was a nice night in SEQ last night, wasn't it Tony! Looks like the breeze picked up by the time you took this... Wivenhoe was a mirror a few hours earlier (as you can see in my pic above).

Thanks Stephen. Yea it was quite calm to start so was hoping for a still lake to try to get a MW reflection which sadly was not the case. Definitely a gorgeous night though.

Hit me up one day for a shoot we're both in Brissy lol!

yep I went thru the same thing. Now all you need to do is focus on infinity. Not all lenses do that by maxing out the focal length. Find an object in the distance to focus on, then re-shoot the milky way. Also, how long did you keep the shutter open for? Try for something around 30-35 seconds maximum so you don't get motion bur from the moving stars.

Hey thanks for the reply. I shot several photo's from 15-32 seconds with 1600-3200 ISO.

I live in a pretty dark place but I got a neighbor about an acre over that has a big spotlight on his property that really messes

with glow at the bottom of the photos. I have to crop a bit out.

I'm gonna head into the mountains more where its darker and give it a whirl.

I took these tonight as a test to see if I could get anything on the sensor. I did better than I thought, now I got a long way to go to

make it right.

Thanks,

Jack
