Ground Control To Major Tom

June 28, 2020

The first time I saw this hut, I know that it will look amazing under the galactic core. The solitary hut along with the perfect symmetry of trees is the perfect foreground for a vertical Milky Way shot. There is only one problem. The direction of the hut is in the northeast and it is virtually impossible to capture what I have envisioned. So I digged into my archives and got an existing image of the milky way that I captured last april. The Milky Way was captured with the aid of a tracker which allowed me to extend the exposure time to 8 minutes and stack multiple images to reveal more detail. I am quite pleased with the result.
