Starry Skies over Mount Kilimanjaro

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.
