Week 2: Night time ... "Milky Way over Naples"
This 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 at f2.8 for 20 seconds at ISO 1200
Keywords: Astrophotography, Beach, Florida, Galaxy, Milky Way, Naples, Nebula, Night Time, Sagittarius, Stars, night sky, satellite
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.
Seriously - THIS is your first attempt ... I will privately send you MY first attempt when I try! - I can promise you it wont be as wonderful as this is - love the satelittes too!
