The Milky Way left hand side revisited

Recommended Posts

Another go at the left hand side of The Milky Way.

Nikon D3100 on tripod, 18mm, ISO 3200, 45 frames at 15 seconds each ( total time 11 minutes 15 seconds).

I tried to get more natural colour from the final image which I'm still having difficulty with. I gave up eventually so I went down the silly saturation path.

Very nice, saturation looks good and natural on 2nd and 3rd images.

Thanks Symeisie04, I feel I pushed them too far. It's only enhanced perceived colour, who knows what it should look like.

More like the centre of the Milky Way.

Very nicely done...

...no, am not at all jealous ;)


Haha Paul. I'm using an older Nikon DSLR with average sensor that's not designed for this type of work. I think any other digital camera could and would do better.

It's similar to the center of our Milky Way yes, the Bulge. I seem to capture more dust on the left hand side of The Milky Way though compared to the Bulge.
