While Kansas may not have the amazing landscapes of other states, we do have plenty of dark sky. This was my first attempt at a Milky Way photo. The darkest phases of the moon cycle were ruined by clouds and humidity, but finally a night opened and we headed our for a late night.
This photo was taken at approximately 2 am and used the PhotoPill application to help find the milky way. Captures on a Fuji Xt2 and Zeiss 12 2.8. ISO 1600, 30 seconds, 2.8. Edited in Lightroom, PS, Color Effects, and Exposure X2.
