Always nice when the summer months roll around the milky way is back in view during the overnight hours. Best astrophotography time of the year in my opinion.

looking at the EXIF tells me this:

Camera Canon EOS 5D Mark II
Exposure 30
Focal Length 50 mm
ISO Speed 2500


Were you wide open at f/1.8 with your nifty 50?

Very cool... I too am awaiting the summer for the better Milky Way shots. However, I love the winter too as it's better for high iso shots.

Ah, dilemma...

I love this shot! I really hope that one day I can actually see this much of the Milky Way.

Todd, do you mean because of the lower humidity?

The humidity in the sky can certainly affect it's visibility, but I was more referring to the sensor heating up due to warmer environment. The warmer it is, the more noise the sensor can produce when shooting at higher ISOs.

Thank you all very much. Sorry for the late reply, this thread wasn't showing up in my subscribed threads for some reason.

This was actually taken with a manual aperture Rokinon 14mm f/2.8 and it registers on my EXIF as a 50mm. So all the other EXIF is right on except for the 50mm. It was 30 sec, 2500 ISO, 14mm at f/2.8. I'm renting the 24mm 1.4 here in a couple of weeks and can not wait to try it out on the Milky Way.

I am in Garden City. It only takes me a good 20-30 minute drive out into the country for some dark skies. I am actually north of GC in this shot so that is what is illuminating the clouds and causing the light pollution on the horizon.
