Castlepoint lighthouse dazzled as the beam swept around, just over the top of me.  The Milky Way, rising in the warm summer's evening, completed a memorable scene :)

I've had many questions about how I took the Milky Way images I've posted in the last few days.  It's my first "foray" into wide angle astrophotography, and I'm really enjoying it.  No, there were no filters used - not even HDR; the dynamic range of the D810 camera is pretty good even at high ISOs.  I've used a 14mm f/2.8 prime lens set at f/3.2 and exposed for 20 seconds or so at ISO 3200.  5 "identical" images were taken with these settings (ie same exposure) and stacked to help reduce noise.

I hope you enjoy the image :)
