An attempt at astrophotography

The Milky Way last night, viewed from an overlook on the North Cascades Highway, far from the lights of the madding crowd. Still trying to learn how to properly edit these shots to get what I really want (the biggest problem is the noise), but this is perhaps my best effort yet. Taken about 11:45 in the evening with a Canon 5D Mk II and Rokinon 14mm f/2.8 lens. For reference, the portion of the Milky Way at the top of the image was in fact straight up above my head... A meteor is visible in the upper right... there were many to be seen last night, some very bright and spectacular!

Re: An attempt at astrophotography

I too find noise the biggest obstacle to overcome with shots like these. I usually try and shoot around ISO 3200 which in newer cameras it seems to help a lot. Nice catch on the meteor. I will get a shot at things like this next week in Yosemite....of course I will need to beat the full moon rise on the 11th for the peak shower activity.

This was shot at ISO 2500, but my poor old 5DII is quite a bit behind the curve when it comes to high-ISO performance, and the noise in the full-size version of this shot, even after processing, is really bad...I wouldn't print it any larger than about 10x15 tops...
