The Milky Way is truly one of the greatest sights to photograph.

I captured several photos of our galaxy using my Nikon D7100 and the following settings:

  • 30 Second Exposure
  • 6400 ISO
  • f/3.5
  • 18mm Lens

Unfortunately, due to my limited exposure time I had to increase the ISO level above what I would like do which means the image is somewhat noisy. However, I am wanting to invest in an iOptron Sky Tracker which will allow me to sent an essentially unlimited exposure time and avoid using a high ISO value. Watch this space!
