Milky Way over Ftan

A very different interpretation of the weekly theme: The jewels of the night sky 😀

Today I hiked up from Ftan to Alp Laret (Bortle class 2) for some astrophotography. Even though the hike was very exhausting, the view I got was more than enough compensation for it - I was stunned. I've never seen this many stars.

Now compare this image to +Milky Way over Einsiedeln - The difference is gigantic 😀

Technical Info:

  • 8 background images (20s f/3.5 ISO 6400) stacked using Sequator (way better than Deep Sky Stacker; faster and can handle lens distortion)
  • 1 foreground image (185s f/5 ISO 800)
