Milky Way Mountains by BuuckPhotography Milky Way Mountains by BuuckPhotography
This is my first night sky photo. By no means is it perfect, but I just really enjoy how the galaxy flows out from between the jagged Kearsarge Pinnacles. The sky was so clear up there in Kings Canyon Nat'l Park :D

That is amazing. Love the lights and I haven't been able to see that many stars in a very long time. *Wag* So pretty.

Is this actually what the sky looked like?  Or is this digitally enhanced or a composite?  Either way, a lovely image

In a way yes, but to answer your question, it was not like this in person.  The naked eye can only pick up so much light (aperture limit).  The sky was very dark up in Kings Canyon National Park (high elevation and no cities for hundreds of miles).  With a darker sky, the stars look brighter in comparison.  Hence, we were able to easily see the milky way with our naked eyes.  It was amazing to see :)

I had my camera on a slow shutter speed, which allowed it to pick up more light.  That added exposure amplified the brightness of each star.  So this photo is how it looked in real life, just not nearly as brilliant, since the camera amplified the brightness.  I did a little digital tweaking afterwards, but it's primarily the product of camera mechanics.

Hopefully that answered your question.  I know I got a bit carried away with my explanation :)

This one is really great and the night photo you have in your avatar. It is seems nearly perfect and I first thought to see a nebula in it but I am not sure. Would be very interesting if you connect your camera directly with a telescope ....

That would be fabulous, but I'm not quite sure how to hook up to a telescope.  I guess I would need to buy a telescope too xD
