Starscape

So my obsession with capturing the milky way continues...

 

This came out pretty well, there's a little bit of trailing but not too much. Shots like these, without the use of an equatorial mount really push the D90 to its limits. It's still quite noisey, but that's almost unavoidable when I was trying to expose the surrounding trees as well.

 

Star missions are fun :)

 

I wonder what our night sky will look like when our galaxy collides with Andromeda?

 

Used the Nikon D90 with the Tokina 11-16 f/2.8

 

105 second exposure, ISO 800 at f/2.8.
