Southern Milky Way and Carina Nebula
Hacienda Los Andes, Chile   –   January 27, 2017
Canon EOS 6D   *   Sigma 50mm f/1.4 EX DG HSM   *   ISO 16000   *   15 sec @ f/1.6

Vertical mosaic. LENR on ISO 16,000. Sigma 50mm f/1.4 lens at f/1.6.

This image is a vertical panorama of two 15 sec exposures at ISO 16,000. The two halves were combined in Adobe Lightroom CC.

To reduce noise in the foreground, I shot it again with a longer exposure at lower ISO

Composite separate foreground panorama that has better aligned horizon and longer exposure, and overlayed it on the noisy background using Photoshop.
