Alan: "The summer Milky Way over the sandstone formations at Writing-on-Stone Provincial Park in southern Alberta, on a dark of the Moon night, July 31, 2016. The foreground is illuminated only by starlight. No artificial light painting was employed here. The Lagoon Nebula and objects in Sagittarius and Scutum are to the south here at centre."

Technical details: This is a composite of a single untracked exposure for the sky, and a mean-combine average stack of 10 exposures for the ground (to smooth noise), all 30-second exposures at f/2 with the 20mm Sigma Art lens at f/2 and Nikon D750 at ISO 4000. They were shot at the end of a motion-control sequence for a time-lapse movie, shot with the Syrp Genie Mini. These frames are from the end of the sequence when the camera had ramped to a stop. Some airglow and light pollution discolour the sky.
