Starry sky on the mountains

Taken from the summit of Nishidake in the Northern Alps of Japan.
It was foggy in the evening, but the fog disappeared at the right time when the astronomical twilight ended. After that, the wonderful starry sky as you can see was waiting for us! I was very excited to release the shutter!

The camera was a Nikon Z 7. The lens was a NIKKOR Z 20mm f / 1.8 S.
This lens is especially suitable for shooting stars. This cut is also open, but the stars are reflected as point images from the maximum aperture. Moreover, all four corners. The sharpness is not too sharp and it is just right.

Nikon's Z system is getting more and more lenses. Every lens has great performance. I expect many photographers to start using the Z system in the near future.

20mm · f/1.8 · 13 · ISO 4000
