Nicholas Roemmelt on Mount Tschirgant --- REPOST: @nicholasroemmelt from facebook.com/groups/milkywaychasers chosen by @astrolandscapes --- Milky Way Chasers Admin: @tracyleephotos --- #milkywaychasers to be featured or post on Facebook.com/groups/milkywaychasers. Tag a friend who might enjoy this Milky Way image and journey! --- From Nicholas about this image: —— „PERSEIDS 2018" - BLEND - EXIFS: - Canon 1DX Mark II, Sigma 14mm f1.8 - 5 exposures taken consecutively from the same place and with the same orientation of the camera : - Background: - 4 pictures for the exposure series (lightpollution): one stop minus each picture (down to 2s) - f2.0 , 20s, Iso 6400 -> f2.0, 2s, Iso 6400 - I could capture the shooting star on the 2nd exposure of the exposure series with the same camera orientation. - Foreground: 1 picture: f2.0 , 20s, Iso 6400 - All 5 pictures were blended in PS - SOCIAL: - FB.com/DrNicholasRoemmeltPhotography instagram.com/nicholasroemmelt - STORY: - Due to bad weather conditions throughout the Alps last weekend a lot of planning had to be done to complete that picture, that shows my personal favorite shooting star 2018. 
Hiking 1350m in elevation and a 7.5 km in distance to reach that point and the sky had been all covered with huge clouds above Mount Tschirgant in Tyrol (Austria). But shortly after sunset the clouds were quickly dispelling as the detailed weather model charts had promised. Though there was a lot of haze in the valley because of the high humidity wich was intensifying the light pollution, it was so amazing to gaze at many shooting stars burning out in the atmosphere tight on the very top of that mountain. 
But before I took that picture I hardly managed to capture a bright shooting star as the biggest ones always had been right on the opposite direction I was pointing my camera to … but I finally could capture this really big one on the second picture of my exposure series. It was burning out glowing visibly green! It definitely was the biggest I had seen that night and even the biggest for me for a long time. — . . . . . #longexposure_shots  #nightimages  #nightshooterz  #nightshooters  #nightpics  #milkywaygalaxy  #astrophotography

With his expert knowledge of PS we were able to use the free transform warp tool and straighten it up. — Sony a7rii, Sigma 14mm f/1.8, 20 Second exposure, 6400 ISO 3400 Kelvin. —- . . . . . #longexposure_shots  #nightimages  #nightshooterz  #nightshooters  #nightpics  #milkywaygalaxy  #astrophotography  #astrophoto  #astro_photography_  #astro_photography  #longexposure  #longexpohunter  #longexpo  #amazing_longexpo  #amazingearth  #natgeospace  #milkyway #nightphotography #night_excl #photopills #amazingphotohunter #fantasticuniverse

Tag a friend who might enjoy this Milky Way image and journey! --- From Kostaki about this image: --- STACKED Situated on the shores of Lake Tekapo, New Zealand, only metres from the water, it is easy to see why this church captures the heart of so many by day. By night, it becomes the perfect setting for a Milky Way shoot, as it is one of the darkest places on the planet. It is almost as though you can reach out and touch the stars. I got incredibly lucky with this shot too. After weeks of rain I arrived when the clouds cleared, the wind stopped & the nebula of the Milky Way rose in the perfect spot.

Tag a friend who might enjoy this Milky Way image and journey! --- From Chris about this image: --- STACKED Instagram.com/ch808_shoots FB.com/CH808-Shoots-532138810286564 I was chasing storms for lightning bolts across SW Florida the other day when the storms parted and I attempted to both the Milky Way and lightning. Flipping my settings around to try to find the sweet spot, I was only able to get this one bolt. I had the MW in frame, but took a few safety shots with more "MW friendly" settings, just in case I couldn't pull the MW out of my single lightning bolt shot. I was able to pull the MW out a little bit in the single frame, but was able to pull it better with the additional shot. So, I stacked them for this image. EDIT: I have done my fair share of "popping" the MW with rainbow colors and such, for this image I was going for something much more subtle, like you would see with the naked eye. An artistic choice I guess.

Tag a friend who might enjoy this Milky Way image and journey! --- From Dan about this image: --- SINGLE SOCIAL instagram.com/DanGalloPhotography STORY Here is a shot from the summer of last year in Joshua Tree National Park. Arch Rock is accessed via a short trail from a campground / parking lot, and on this particular night there were several other photographers capturing similar shots. I had brought along a color-changing LED lamp (a Philips Hue Go) which I placed behind the arch after the place got a bit quieter, then I briefly illuminated the rocks in the foreground of the shot with an LED torch. I recently reprocessed this photo, managing to bring out some more detail in the sky, and I think I’ve captured airglow (the green coloring / streaks toward the horizon). Please feel free to correct me if I'm mistaken though - I’ve not seen this coloring in my Milky Way photos before!

I had quite a short time window to capture this panorama, indeed the sun was rising only two hours after the moonset. I wasted quite a lot of time trying to shoot a massive pano at 35mm with each panels stacked... I soon realised that the milky way would be behind the hill and the sun up in the sky before I could finish 😅. I had just enough time left to shoot another pano at a shorter focal lenght, without any stacking. I finished shooting the foreground a few minutes before sunrise. Couldn't feel my fingers anymore ! ❄ EXIF : Panorama taken at 20mm (APS-C sensor) - one row of 10 exposures for the sky : ISO 3200, f2.8, 20sec - 10 other exposures for the foreground : ISO 1600, f5.6 30sec ---- . . . . . #longexposure_shots  #nightimages  #nightshooterz  #nightshooters  #nightpics  #milkywaygalaxy  #astrophotography  #astrophoto  #astro_photography_  #astro_photography  #longexposure  #longexpohunter  #longexpo  #amazing_longexpo  #amazingearth  #natgeospace  #milkyway #nightphotography #night_excl #photopills #amazingphotohunter #fantasticuniverse

Tag a friend who might enjoy this Milky Way image and journey! --- From Gary about this image: --- Category: Blend Social: Instagram.com/garyxujw Story: While the composition isn't all that new, the process was quite meaningful to me. It was the first time I took my mom to a midnight shoot. If you've been to McWay falls recently, you would know that the main walkway was cut short by a metal fence because of trail erosion. However, to get the best composition, you must cross to the other side. Thus in cover of the night, me and my mom hopped the cliffside fence and got in the best position for the photo. It was great family bonding moment for me.

My friends and I tried Wizards Island but we made it too late to the seasonal party, so our next best option was to try and find a back up plan. Well we did, and I can without a doubt say this was truly a blessing in disguise. We watched as cars drove around the park for a good ol time, bustling our feet to find a good spot, checking PhotoPills for that perfect milkyalignment. Unfortunately we were off by a bit, but honestly, after sitting out in that cold until 3am we were ready for some warm sleep... This is an 11 image stack.
