"Surrounded by Stars" by Amit Kamble "There is not a time that we are away from starlight, we are forever surrounded by stars. This is a 360 panorama shot from Whatipu Beach, during the Aotearoa Astrophotography meetup. In the image you can see The Milky Way setting, at the center of the frame you can see the galactic kiwi and some crazy air glow, the corner tell you what you miss out in the night sky with a lot of light pollution. You can notice that the number of stars visible reduces as you go towards that part of the image that is light polluted." This is a 35 image panorama.
Exif for each frame: 20sec, ISO 6400, f2.8 at 24mm using Samyang 24mm on Canon 6D
The Large Magellanic Cloud is one of my favourite night sky object viewable from the Southern Hemisphere. At a distance of 163,000 light years from earth LMC is considered an irregular type galaxy and the third closest galaxy to our own Milky Way.
For the tech specs of this image, it was shot on a Canon 6D with a Canon 90mm tilt-shift lens, which is such a super sharp lens! The exposure was 10 second shutter at f/3.2 ISO 6400. I had to shoot two single exposure frames to get me and the Large Magellanic Cloud in the one shot, and I stitched them together in Auto Pano Giga.
