Over the weekend we were hoping to see some Northern Lights, but no such luck in that department. We did, however, have fun photographing the Milky Way Galaxy! This is also a landmark photograph in that it is the first one on my website that was shot at ISO 12,800! Normally an ISO setting that high would have too much noise to be a usable shot, but I think because of the cold air last Saturday night (temp was in the low 30's), the sensor didn't heat up as much as it normally would and thus I was able to shoot at higher ISO's than I normally do. At any rate, I hope you enjoy the photo!
