Photo of the Month for June, 2016
Milky Way Rising over Flagstaff
© 2016 Klaus Brasch
I enjoyed an exceptionally dark sky a few days ago and captured the following image of the Milky Way rising over my southern horizon. This is a mosaic of 2 x 4 stacked 1 minute exposures with the modified Canon 6D, Astronomik CLS filter and a Canon 40mm f/2.8 wide angle lens, shooting at f/4.5 and ISO 6400.
Miraculously too, no airplanes of satellites streaking across at 1 am!
