Photographing the Milky Way


At some dark parts on this globe we have a beautiful view on the milky way. It shows as a lighted band on the nightly sky. It is possible to capture it on camera. The fun part is: The camera can see more than the naked eye.

It requires a SLR on tripod and a bit of technical knowledge. This shows how easy it is. Hardest part is probably to find dark night sky, real dark night sky.

ISO200, 12mm, F/5.0, this photo has an effective exposure time of 90 minutes

The trick is not to expose one image very long, but to combine multiple photos into one image. The image above consists of 9 photos that were exposed for 10 minutes each (1.5 hour total).
