We’ve recently moved to southern New Mexico where the sky is much darker than any place I’ve lived. Light pollution is virtually non-existent.
One night after sitting on the deck with no lights on for about 30 minutes, I stepped out into the yard and looked up … the stars took my breath away! There were so many and they were so bright, plus the Milky Way stretched up across the sky, looking like a long string of millions of bright jewels.
So a few nights later, armed with the E-M1.2 and Olympus 12mm f2 lens, I gave it a try. This is one of my better attempts at ISO 1600, f2, and 15 seconds. I know I have a lot to learn about astrophotography, but I was happy with my first try. There will definitely be more … 🙂
