I took a trip the other night to the historic House in the Horseshoe for some Milky Way shots. I’m pretty happy with how this shot turned out. The front of the house was illuminated by a close street light.

📸: Sony A6100 with Sigma 30mm
Settings: 1 foreground image at f/3.5, ISO 500, 30” exposure
Background: Tracked 4 row panorama consisting of 3 shots stacked in each row at f/3.5, ISO 640, 60” exposures on iOptron Skytracker Pro.

all images edited in Lightroom and blended in Photoshop.
