Hoping to get back home soon to that beautiful dark sky in southern New Mexico …
E-M1.2 and Olympus 12mm f2 lens. ISO 1600, f2, and 15 seconds.
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 … 🙂
