This is the final image of the Milky Way I captured last month. This was the same night I captured the core, but this one was taken after the moon fully set. This trip was more for me to get used to my equipment and using the tracker. I learned a couple of tips on how to set it up faster, as well as how to get the best results while tracking. So this was basically a dry run for my trip to New Mexico, and photographing Shiprock, which you will all get to see on the next round of Milky Way images I release.
Anyway, I was surprised how fast I was able to get it set up this time and get to imaging. But what you'll see this Friday is I have honed those skills even more and was able to get my tracker up and running within only a couple of minutes. The more I use a tracker, the more it is all I want to use while photographing the night sky. The detail you're able to get from the images is unreal. Plus when I master it I'm sure I will be able to crank out multiple locations in just one night.
