Milky Way over GSENM, Utah | Nikon D850 | Nikon 70-200 E Fl
4

Last night was incredible - never seen such dark skies. To top it all, I saw a few meteors from the Perseids Meteor Shower - however, since I am going to photograph it at its peak (August 11 night and August 12 night), I did not want any of them in my frame. Can't wait to head back tonight for another composition that I have in mind in Candyland. Nikon D850 and the Nikon 70-200 E Fl lens at 70mm. Dual exposure - foreground at dusk and the MW at night. Milky Way taken with a Star Adventurer star tracker... ISO 400, 4 minutes exposure, f/3.2.

This was my first time using a star tracker (just received it) and I am very pleased with it. I also took a 10 minute exposure to test the tracker and below is a 100% crop from it @70mm.

Cheers,
