Bringing kinja into focus, one frame at a time

Here are a few more Milky Way shots from my recent outing. I’ve also included a re-edit of a SpaceX launch from last year.

Weather-permitting, I’ll be heading out to a really dark spot with some friends in a few weeks to get some Milky Way shots with significantly less light pollution, but more bugs. Always fun to have to wear long pants and long sleeves in the Florida summer.


These shots were with slightly different foregrounds and slightly different settings, which I don’t have in front of me to share. But if you are curious, just let me know and I’ll fire up the computational photo machine to get the details.

he rocket launch is the SpaceX Telstar 19V that went up on July 22nd, 2018. I wanted to apply the editing skills I’ve learned over the past year to it. It is a vast improvement. With the Falcon Heavy night launch next week, I was checking out past photos and settings so that I can be ready to get the best picture possible. I have one more to revisit to compare how my new editing skills work on it. Next week’s launch pic, if I pull off what I am trying to pull off will be epic. I hope. I’m planning on shooting with three cameras, one of them is film.


Anyway, here is the Telstar 19V launch re-edit.
