Starry Skies over Mount Kilimanjaro
In reply to Allison Johnson, Aug 8, 2014

Got to enjoy some clear and starry skies while trying to climb to the top of Mount Kilimanjaro in January of this year. BTW, I got as high as the last camp at 15k+ ft, but did not make the final climb to the top due to a Cold.

Anyway, On our third night on the mountain,

At 12,776 ft elevation.

After dinner, grabbed the tripod, fisheye lens, remote shutter and Ipod Touch (Timer / tunes)

With bright Jupiter and flipped Orion.
With the Large Magellanic nebulous cloud

Sony Alpha NEX-7 ,Samyang 8mm f3.5 Fisheye
61s f/1.0 iso3200

Defished and NR applied.
