Milky Way – Olympus E-M1 Mk II

My First Milky Way - E-M1 MkII

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 … 🙂
