Introducing Myself

Hi All,
I am new to the forum and new to nightscape photography. I have dabbled a bit, but have never gotten serious. By way of introduction I offer a shot I took last year in Australia that show the Emu and the Large Magellanic Cloud from Coolah. Technical: Old Canon 5D, 14mm Rokinon, 3x2 minutes tracked, stacked in Sequator. I traded in the 5D for a 6D and am looking forward to learning more about night-time landscapes.

If you got the 6d original you will be on a winner for nightscapes, it is an awesome piece of kit for that style of photography. I currently shoot with the 6d mk2 and wish my 6d didn't get salt water in it.
Consider learning how to do star reduction in PS as it helps the MW stand out more with less stars to clutter the image.

An awesome shot Edward and good to see it was done with the Rokinon SP 14mm f/2.4 Lens as that is the one I'm just about to buy for my New Nikon D850.
