A self portrait with the moon and milkyway, so its basically MMM(Me, moon and milkyway) ¯_(ツ)_-¯ .
Another image from a trip with with my friend Ramit during last summer near Antignano(Tuscany). The conditions were perfect for night photography. But there was something more crazy. We got the moon and the Milkyway in a single frame (for a very less time: something like 15 minutes) when the moon was setting and near the horizon. I have never seen something like this. We didn't have any star tracker that night, but my friend had a 50mm with him and I knew it can bring the crazy details as well. So the sky was taken with Canon 6D and 50mm and the foreground with Nikon D810 and Samyang 14mm. It was not easy to blend as the two lenses have different scaling. The sky is a pano of twelve images. The foreground consists of two images, one with and one without the self portrait. I love the overall result

wow what an amasing shot. Christopher, my guess as to why it is grainy is due to a high ISO, but I want to know how you get such good colour in your star shots.
