Holy moly! Omg! Well .. not really - took this image yesterday - part of the milky way. Gotta love the southern night skies.
I took this with a Canon 40D and the 50mm f1.4 and ISO 800 and 8 seconds exposure. The picture you see was created from four separate exposures, that I then stacked together in Photoshop to reduce noise and get more dynamic range. It's not a stellar image ( sorry for the bad pun ) but still pretty interesting and once again confirms that the 50mm prime 1.4 is my favourite lens.
And there's also the moon rising above the fogs of Seatoun. Shot from my balcony.
