Northern Milky Way Panorama (Sept 09).jpg
An 8-section mosaic of the northern Milky Way, from Aquila at right to Gemini at left, taken from southern Alberta on night Sept 23/24, 2009. The sky transparency was good but not great due to some smoke in the air and high haze. Taken with a Canon 5D MkII (Hutech modified), and a Canon 35mm L-series lens at f/4. Each frame of the mosaic is a stack of 4 x 8 minute exposures at ISO 800. Assembled in Photoshop with Photmerge command.
