Early last Thursday morning I headed to Yattalunga Wharf for some early-morning nightscapes. I’ve already posted the Yattalunga Star Trails from that morning – and here’s a couple of the images taken with my Canon 6D.
This first image is a 6-frame panorama, with the Milky Way setting in the West.
Each frame was captured at ISO3200, 20s exposure, f/2.8, 14mm with the Canon 6D.
Everything is much harder in light pollution! It affects both capture and processing. During capture, I had to use shorter exposures with a lower ISO than normal. During processing, I couldn’t “push” the image as far as normal, otherwise it just highlights the light pollution even more. Colour balance is also much trickier.
Makes me want to get out under dark skies again very soon!
Still, I’m happy with this result – was nice to be out under the stars even if just for an hour or two before work!
This second one is a 4-frame vertical panorama, cropped square. Canon 6D, 24mm @ f/2.8, 15s exposures @ ISO3200.
Thanks for looking!
