This is last night’s sky as viewed from my house, a quick and crude attempt at night sky photography. The image is, of course, a composite. The upper part, where most stars are, is a stack of 5 exposures (20s f2.8 ISO 3200 each) combined in Photoshop, in order to increase the amount of gathered light, making it possible to see fairly faint stars (with the naked eye we sure cannot see that many stars). I made 20 exposures but ended using just 5. The tree line and the orange glow of sodium city lights (about 12km away) is a single exposure blended with the others. As I was not using a telescope mount to compensate for earth’s movement, just a plain tripod, the stars moved slightly across the various frames and in the end were a bit tricky to align properly in PS. I opted for not having a deep black sky, with just the stars, and preferred a slight warm glow. Hope you like it and give me your feedback. Thanks.
