Extreme imaging? Amazing what you can capture in just 10 seconds of exposure.
This is a vertical panorama of 5 shots (camera in landscape orientation), with each shot just a single 10s exposure @ ISO12800 (!), f/2.2, 50mm lens with a Canon 6D.
I kept the exposures so short to avoid star trails because I was using a 50mm lens with no tracking. To compensate for the shorter exposure, I bumped the ISO right up which the 6D handled extremely well.
I had taken other shots with the 50mm lens at IISAC2013 (eg: Within Reach) but in those cases I was tracking using the Vixen Polarie. I was keen to see how high I could go with ISO in order to keep the exposures short and still get enough detail. I was pleasantly surprised 🙂
Thanks for looking.
