The Milkyway in Cygnus
Here is a Milkyway shot,
I just got around to archiving all my images from last year, and found some unprocessed image folders on my laptop.
I’m always shooting, even when I travel.
I often don’t get time to process everything with my busy schedule….but it’s been cloudy a lot here lately, so now is the time to get all caught up.
While on my way back from a business trip to Oklahoma City,
I captured this Milkyway shot off of US 44 between Tulsa, OK & Joplin, MO. September 7th, 2010.
This is a 10 minute shot Canon Rebel Xsi, 17mm lens, (2 x 5min subs) 10 minute exp. ISO 800.
