Photo Information for Howden Reservoir MW - Richard Lawrence-Day.jpg


Recommended Comments

Shot under the light polluted skies of Howden Reservoir, I've tried to tease out as much of the MW as I can without going too OTT - this spot (53.4426 N - 1.7484 W, 282m elevation) would normally be under around 2 meters of water! ?

Mars is visible just above the tree line on the left.

Vertical 2 frame panorama stitched in PS. Canon 6D, Samyang 14mm f/2.8 wide open. The top 80% or so of sky  is made up of 10 frames captured using an iOptron Skytracker - ISO 2500, 30s, registered and stacked in PI. Foreground and bottom 20% or so of horizon/sky is a single shot at ISO 800, f/11 30s exposure.

Thanks for looking!
