Photo taken at Rocky Mountain National Park at Colorado. A really beautiful place with snowcap mountains view.
A combination of 4 shots were taken. 2 for the sky and 2 for the foreground. This is one of the few times I took with a high focal length and it turn out not too bad.

Shot taken at 50mm f4.0 ISO5000 at 60s with a Star Adventurer.

Another photo taken at Rocky Mountain National Park. It was a pretty cloudy night and this is what I managed to get. A total of 18 shots were taken to build the panoramic milky way.

Thanks! That was actually Jupiter with the coma effect. I never realized that it looked like a comet until you mentioned it! :mryellow:

This is the last of the astro shot taken for the recent trip. It's one that proof the most challenging for me. For some reason I did a lousy job with the stitch job. You could see the different color tones. The way the program blended the photos just didn't come out well. Any ideas of how to do this better???

Photo taken at Mesa Verde National Park. A total of 16 shots were taken. 8 each for the sky and foreground. ISO 3200 40s 24mm f2.0 mounted on Star Adventurer.

Processing issues aside, it's still a great shot of the Milky Way... :)
