Kalahari Hunter

Hey guys, just signed up so this is my first post.

Just got back from Namibia last week and this is the first of my data sets to get processed.

Its a 4 panel mosaic with my Canon 6D MK2 (modded) and the Sigma Art 105mm @ F/1.4

Each panel is 30 minutes of exposure - 60 x 30 second subs.

SQM hit 22.13 but conditions were honestly pretty average by Kalahari standards - there was however literally zero airglow which likely accounts for the super dark reading and i recorded it at the zenith well before the Gegenschien was up and the galaxy was low on the horizon. Ive previously recorded 22.05 there in the winter under near perfect conditions but airglow was really prominent at that time.

Calibrated in RawTherapee, processed in PixInsight and Photoshop.

Im heading back there in January for a run and will hopefully be adding a lot more data to it
