Paul Storey pin 360

Milky Way Porthole, by Paul Storey

This is a fisheye projection made from 32 images, Sony A7S at ISO 6400, Canon EF 17-40mm F4L lens at 20mm, f/4.  Stitched together in Microsoft ICE and post processed in Photoshop CC.  

This was taken at the Pinnacles Desert, Nambung National Park in West Australia. The conditions were magnificent with a cool and clear night free of cloud. The temperature was about 4.5 degrees celsius.

In the picture the projection was chosen to show the bright zodiacal light extending up to the zenith where the Milky Way can be seen extending from edge to edge in the whole sky view. Nestled within this zodiacal light is Mercury (setting in the ocean), Venus, Jupiter, Mars, and Saturn.
