    My humble trial to get the milky way. I guess I was too early and didn't have a wide enough lens.

    I am going to go back to 2017 on a night when I was set up looking for Aurora that did not happen. I noticed I could just make out the Milky Way looking up. So I turned the tripod around and attempted to photograph the Milky Way without actually having done any research into how to do it right. I just figured I would try, I had my Sigma 18-35mm f/1.8 Art and thought it would be easy. Here is the best shot on the night. I did not know about layer stacking at all.

    Each of the past 2 summers, I set up at a different park, and tried my hand some more. Learning each time and also how to do layer stacking. This past month I was at the original park photographing NEOWISE. I ended my last night doing this by turning around and photographing that view again. Not an exact composition to the original, but pretty close. This time with a FX D750 and Sigma 20mm f/1.4 Art.

    You definitely made huge strides there, BF Hammer. So what is the yellow area in the bottom photo? Stars don't tend to show up when the sun hasn't set fully, do they (asks someone who lives in an area filled with haze and light pollution)?

    There is a lake and a highway in the farther background. A small city is out of frame to the left. The light pollution is an issue that way. I did use a light-pollution filter in front of the lens, but it was beginning to fog with dew around midnight when I did this. I use Sequator to stack landscapes like this and it also has a reduce light-pollution slider that I used. I think that is why it gets so yellow without much fade. I likely had the "aggressive" check mark on for light pollution reduction.

    Here is a single image outtake I liked because of some car headlights on the trees. It gives a better picture of how that horizon did look.

    That looks interesting with the headlights shining on the trees.

    From last year at a lake well past the park's closing hour. I was waiting for the clouds and the waning twilight to go away, so I just experimented with a selfie. I actually like this composition with the clouds better.

    Finally got a shot of the Milky Way. Taken at the KOA near the Badlands National Park, SD. Single shot processed in Lightroom.
