Real nice image, like the colors. Since you didn't use a tracking device would you provide the exposure details, and how many photos you took.


Thanks Richard66. I manually stacked 5 photos on Photoshop. Exposure are all around 0.6s to 1.3s at iso6400 - 12800. Shot with 5Dmk3 with 500mm F4 IS and 1.4 ext mk3. It's cropped and I boosted saturation, high noise reduction applied. But again, stacking looks so much better than a single file.

I really hope I can save up for a quality tracking mount. Anyone can share their experience with theirs?
