Week 2: Night time ... "Milky Way over Naples"

Milky Way over NaplesThis is my first attempt at capturing the Milky Way. I think I'm hooked! I kind of like the glow of Naples on the horizon and also the two satellites making an accidental appearance in this shot. Nikon D750, Rokinon 14mm/2.8, ISO 1600, f/2.8 for 20 seconds.

This IS my first attempt but I studied hard beforehand and used suggestions from the book "Night Sky" by Jennifer Wu. She gives very specific information for shooting as well as post processing of your images. Unfortunately, we do not have very good visibility of stars in our state due to light pollution. I hope to go out West some day and try this again.

Oh, Julie, what's not to like about this photo? I have always wanted to try my hand at photographing the Milky Way but after seeing yours, I fear I would fall short. Super great photo.
