Roche Lake Milky Way
Lens: Pentax 14mm Camera: K3II Photo Location: Kamloops B.C. ISO: 800 Shutter Speed: Above 6s Aperture: F5

First Milkyway of the season, probably the last one until September when it rises at more humane hours. Health so far keeps me from staying up much later than 7/8pm. Right now though, I'm usually awake by 3am which gave me the time to meet up with a friend and head to this location. At -29C, it was a cold but beautiful morning.
First successful milky way in the snow. Been trying for 2 years now.
Sky: 4-90s images tracked in camera, ISO 800, f5, stacked in Lynkeos.
Foreground: one 176s (or so). Combined and stretched in Affinity Photo, finished in LR.

Beautiful. I've just been shooting the stars from my deck. It's about time to head up into the hills before it gets warm and hazy.
