Venus rising, seen from a local beach

Recommended Posts

After spending some time deep sky imaging in my garden on Friday evening, I walked to a local beach in the early hours to view and image the Milky Way, taking advantage of the southern view over the sea.

Sky transparency wasn't as great as I'd hoped to be honest - it had looked better from the garden, earlier. Still, I took some images, using a Canon 5D Mk III, 35mm and 24mm lenses, on a static tripod. Here's the 24mm lens capture, taken just after the end of astro-dark so that the Milky Way Core was reasonably high and Venus had risen.

The 5x15-sec ISO 6400 frames were stacked in Sequator to reduce noise. Contrast was adjusted, and vignetting and distortion reduced, using CyberLink PhotoDirector.

Regards, Mike.
