The Milky Way in all its beauty

by Editor  Graham Daly




Over past two years I have absolutely fallen in love with shooting the Milky Way. Nothing is better to me than standing under the clear night sky, looking up, seeing the Milky Way with my eye and then spending several hours photographing its beauty.

 


“Counting The Stars” by Graham Daly


When it comes to photographing the Milky Way, there are two main types or styles of imagery that you can produce and they are (1) Deep Space Astrophotography and (2) Wide Field Astrophotography. The former normally uses a telescope or at least a telephoto lens with a sufficient focal length in order to penetrate through the Earth’s atmosphere, which in turns allows for the photographing of particular objects within the vast reaches of space. The latter is normally captured using wide angle and extreme wide angle lenses in order to not only capture the Milky Way and the stars in the night sky within the frame but also allows for the inclusion of the Earth’s landscape within the frame as well.

In this article I want to focus on Wide Field Astrophotography and specifically those images that feature the Milky Way. Seeing other people's images often motivates me to go out and stay out under the night sky with my camera. I hope that this collection of Milky Way images from members of the 1x community also inspires and motivates you to do the same.
