Milkyway widefield and startrails

Some holiday snaps and earlier this year over a new moon long weekend

All taken with a Sony A7R and Samyang 35mm lens.

Approx 3hrs for the start trails.

Approx 20 x 1min for both the Milkyway shots using a Star Adventurer to track the background

I'll do an intentional star trail one day before I die
I love the second one!

Thanks David and Colin,

These wide fields are a great way to fill in time while the main scope is ticking away.

Just have find some interesting foregrounds to include with the milkyway

Cheers Geoff

Cool Shots Geoff, and I like the composition.
Do you notice any "star eater" issues with exposures going over 30 sec on your sony?

Cheers
Josh

Very striking images. Top notch stuff Geoff!
Can't decide which I like more.

I think Linville for sentimental reasons - you start to relax once you get that far out, and know what comes next


Did you photoshop the stacked stars on the foreground somehow?
