Something we haven’t done a lot of is Deep Sky Astrophotography, this one particular clear new moon night we had the opportunity to do just that.
After shooting the sunset and emerging night sky we had a moment to wait before the Galactic Centre was going to be aligned above a subject we planned to capture. (Which will be coming soon)
We set up the D850 with the Nikkor 14-24mm on the Polarie Star Tracker and aligned it as accurately as possible to the South Pole and began capturing longer exposures than possible without a star tracker.
This image is the result of the Galactic Centre being tracked with the Polarie Star Tracker and multiple exposures stacked with the help of star stacking software.
