The more images of this I share, the more I want to go out and shoot it again. Astrophotography can be seriously addicting. I'm by no means a professional, or even experienced at it, but it's a lot of fun. I don't have the equipment necessary (like a tracking mount) to take the best photos of stars, but I do what I can. Used a high ISO and a long shutter speed to gather the light of the Milky Way (unfortunately, the long shutter caused the Milky Way to blur a little since it rotates across the sky). Adjusted the "curves" setting in Photoshop and removed grain using Topaz DeNoise. Very pleased with this result. :)

Please tell me what you think! 8-)

You have used many flirters to make the picture clear...but what without them? I mean I'm trying to hunt down I good place for observing stars for quite a while, and one of my "dreams" is to see galaxy, and a lot of stars like on your pic. Is this possible without any equipment to sees this ? (more simple: What did you see, before taking photo?)


And of course I'm just amazed with the photo ;) I love stars...  *.*

Looks awesome.  Is this just 1 photo or did you stack a couple photos?
