Superb work Kev - the 360 degree panorama is really fun to play with - almost as good as being there ! :icon_biggrin:

That's quite glorious, I'd love to have a go at creating something here given our proximity to oodles of lovely hills.

Thank you sharing and for the inspiration :blob7:

Yesss....

That's a thriller. It's a strange experience to see what's behind you and in front of you (the Milky Way as normally observed) as if it were all in front of you. Most exciting. Both landscape and sky are exquisite. If this doesn't win a prize I will throw an FSQ at the judges!!

A wonderful panorama!

Got me all dizzy, but it was worth it.

Gorgeous!

That's just brilliant Kev. It's amazing how well the foreground has been captured with just an 8 sec exposure.

I keep going back to the data and tweaking it a bit more each time so the interactive panorama is changing daily lol You can know turn the 'flare' on and off by using the control icons on the left end of the controls

Kev just having another look whilst at work and mu god thats some camera it can see through to OZ. Seriously if you pan down to your feet it looks like this .

Have you tried creating one of those spherical panoramas in PS with this data? Id like to see the result.

      Hello everyone,
      I'm Jonny and I live in Farnborough in Hampshire, UK.
      My friend and I are taking our first baby-steps into night sky photography so I'm here for all the help I can get.
      We're just starting out so our equipment is very basic, but I'm sure the more we get into this the more we will upgrade over time.
       
      Currently our set up consists of:
      Home-made Motorised Barn Door Tracker (my friend is an engineer)
      Canon 1100D with an 18-55mm Lens
      Laptop with BackyardEOS
       
      We took everything out for it's first test-drive last week and the tracker works really well. Even on very long exposures the stars remain as points and not trails so we were really pleased with how it performed.
      I've attached what was probably our most successful picture of the evening. It' not amazing, but it's a start.
      I would really love to get some photos of the Milky Way and I'm hoping you all could suggest some settings to use, imaging techniques to try out and equipment upgrades? We're on a bit of a budget but we have photographer friends from whom we can beg and borrow equipment.
      Looking forward to chatting with you all in time.
       
      Jonny

      Hi all,
      Newbie to the forum but I just wanted to share some shots with you that I managed to get over the weekend. Got the Milky Way and even a few of NEOWISE which was amazing to witness 😊
      Milky Way - 5 x 20 seconds stacked (not tracked), 11mm, F/2.8, ISO 800
      NEOWISE Landscape shot - Single exposure, 8 seconds, 16mm, F/2.8, ISO 800
      NEOWISE Stack 1 - 2 x 10 seconds, 16mm, F/2.8, ISO 800
      NEOWISE Stack 2 - 2 x 13 seconds, 55mm, F/5.6, ISO 1600 
      For a first real attempt, I'm pretty pleased with them but obviously, I have a lot more to learn! 
      Frankie

      Hi SGL forum.
      I currently have a HEQ5 Pro mount which I am just about to attach an Astroberry to for normal astro pics etc. 
      However I am really interested in sticking a normal camera and wideish lens to do some wide field panoramic milky way shots and stitch them together. 
      So mt question is have any of you ever seen anything that will drive the mount to do a patchwork of shots automatically?

      Wide angle shot of Milky Way in Cygnus. 10 min total (4 subs of 2.5 min each) at ISO 100. Nikon D3200 with kit lens at 18mm (f/5.6). Tracking on a skywatcher 150p EQ3-2 mount - no guiding.

      I currently am on holiday in my father's hometown, a small island near rhodes called symi.Symj, is a pretty small town,with only about 2000 residents.That means that the light pollution levels must be low. Acknowledging that, i called my friends, grabbed my 10x50 bins(that i got for 20€ from Turkey),and went on my way to find a dark site.About after 20 mins of walking (from the city),i stumbled upon a beach, it was dark, so i went in.There i decided to lay on a sunbed that was there.After looking up(not being dark adapted, my friends just kept turning their flashlights on for some reason), i saw the haze of the milky way stretching from Cassiopeia to cygnus and beyond!I was amazed as i ve never seen the milky way before and smudged it off as clouds until i confirmed it was the milky way from an app! The weird part was that at just straight overhead, was the port ,which had many lights, and as a result the sky appeared half bright and half dark. I turned over at Sagittarius and headed over the lagoon nebula. Brilliant! 3-4 stars in a line surrounded by bright nebulosity.(while still being in the haze!) Afterwards i headed to cygnus,it was a real light show! I saw the milky way layering on top of Cygnus while catching a glimpse of m23 and yet again, failing to see NGC7000 . Then, with the corner of my eye, i detected something moving, then turned over to Cassiopeia to see a shooting stsr!(it was my first time seeing one!!!) Was very brief, yet enjoyable. Right afterwards i turned over at the Perseus double cluster.Magnificent! Appeared as 2 small balls of light , almost connected yo eachother. Finally, i realised that finally, the target i was seeking to observe all year long, M31 was into the area with the light pollution! What a shame! While also being low on the Horizon, I couldnt see it with the naked eye. I observed it with ny binoculars for 10 minutes or so . The core was resolved nicely with some hints of outer nebulosity. Overall a great night and now, i wished i had my 8" dob with me....
      (Sorry for any granmar mistakes, im currently typing this at 2 am xD)
