This is a 10 shot panorama covering over 180 degrees of sky view from North (left) to South (right) while looking East and featuring the full Spring arc of our Milky Way galaxy, a bit of unexpected aurora color and the orange hue of light pollution. This image was processed through Lightroom 5 (twice, once for the sky and once for the foreground) & Photoshop CS5 and stitched together via PTGui. Photographed about 20 miles outside of Augusta, Maine.
Nikon D600 & 14-24 @ 14mm

The dome and one of the telescopes used by the Miami Valley Astronomical Society in Dayton, Ohio for deep space observations.
The Milky Way rises in the Southeast as the moon slowly sets in the Southwest, lighting up the foreground area and creating a 'blue hour' glow in the sky over the red rock hues of Dead Horse Point State Park in Utah. This is one frame from a 2 hour time lapse that will be featured in our upcoming short film Shot In The Dark.
