RBA & AF Astrophotography

Striking synchronicity (Yosemite Valley): Comments

Awesome work! I am extremely curious about what combination of aperture size, detector and exposure time captured enough photons for that much detail of the Milky Way, yet did not blur the clouds? ~1s? given the length of the meteor trail.

Ed, they're 20 seconds exposures. Of course, the meteor only needs a fraction of that within that timeframe to show up. It's a 20mm prime lens at f/2.5, on a Canon 5D Mark II. No need to worry about blurry clouds or star trails with that exposure time and focal length.

Estoy alucinando con tus fotos. Ya me gustaría aprender, ahora que tengo una canon 650....
Gracias por estos momentos mágicos.

Thank you very much for the beautiful pictures. I find that I want each one to have just to look at.
Thanks for all the effort I know you must put in to each one.

Lovely pic Rogelio. What s/w did you use to stitch the 8 panes? Did you have distortion between the frames at 20mm?

Your pictures truly express the beauty of nature. They are like a way of showing where heaven and earth meet. It is truly remarkable. :-)

This is an amazing photo - found it today as it was featured on APOD.

Do you have a hi-res version that I might be able to use as a desktop wallpaper? Something that is at least 3840 x 1080 would be amazing!

Congratulations on this beautiful image - well deserved entry on APOD! I've set this as my wallpaper to be inspired every day.
