it is amazing! i dont think our nikon would get close to that lol but we dont have much amazing nature scenes to capture anyways.
how much do you see of it just with the eyes? i have never seen a really starry sky ,theres just too much buildings and lights that disturb the view, even further away from downtown.

Thank you! :aww: It looks exactly like this! it's very hard to find a perfect clean night to see a sky like this, you'd need to be away from light pollution and also no moon in the sky to see all the stars :)

Is this one long 5min exposure on a german-eq mount or is it a bunch of 30sec photo's stacked?
I really love this photo! I have been trying to get a great photo of the Milky Way for myself, but every time I add my photo's to Deep Sky Stacker they come out like poo.

Yeah location is def. key to doing this. I wish I was over in Europe the sky here in Michigan is a pain to get a clear and nice shot of.
I still have not had any luck stacking my photos. I look forward to seeing your next sky shots!

hey, we are(4 students) working on a small university project creating a sci-fi point and click adventure with flash cs3 as3.
I was wondering if we can use this picture, edit it and make it the title screen. its non commercial for studies only.

Wow awesome photo, I went to the Mt John Observatory too and met Fraser, I need to dig out the photo he took for me and put it on here. I dont remember it coming out quite as well as this though, you must have had a great night there! Fantastic stuff!
