The Milky Way over the Everglades

I got up at 1:20am and gathered my gear to drive down to the Everglades to catch the Milky Way. The weather conditions were just right with clear skies, no moon, cool temperatures and a very light breeze that did not disturb the water surface. the cool weather kept the mosquitos in check. I arrived at one of the many lakes around 3:00am in the Everglades National Park. My goal was to try out some new techniques to capture the Milky Way. This image of the Milky Way is made up of 20 images that were stacked to reduce the noise and provide more definition to the stars in the night sky. Taken 03-30-2022

Startrails over the Florida Everglades

Startrails over the Florida Everglades
Photo by Lee Smith – Startrails-08-12-2018

I got up 2:30am, had my coffee and left my house by 3am. It takes about 1 1/2 hours to reach my destination deep in the Florida Everglades. I have to walk through the area in total darkness with a small flashlight to find my spot to setup my tripod and shoot. I ususally adjust my camera settings at home before leaving, so I do not have to waste time on site. I have to capture about (180) 20 second images. When I get home, I download all the images and select the 180 images to stack and combine in my software. The whole processing part can take about 30-45 minutes once the image is combined to get this result.
