The Heart of the Milky Way, by Harley Grady
Moonless summer nights in Texas means it is Milky Way time. For this photo, I used twenty light frames plus a handful of dark frames and stacked them in Photoshop. This was my first attempt at stacking photos and I am extremely happy with the results! Funny enough, while taking the photos an Armadillo, the state mammal of Texas, ran underneath my tripod. It startled me for sure! Glad he didn’t hit the tripod and disturb the images!
Camera: Canon 1DX MK II
Lens: Canon EF 35mm 1.4L IS II
