I just threw up in my mouth
Why? I'd think that wouldn't be too pleasant experience.

I just threw up in my mouth
Was this at f/1.4 aperture? How long was the exposure?
Well captured! What was the camera you used? I'm guessing a FF (perhaps 6D or 5DmkII or 5DmkIII?)
Went out last night to shoot Milky Way. I had my friend's 24/1.4 with me. It was late and I was tired so I forgot to try also with my Sigma 14/2.8. But the pics with 24/1.4 came out quite nice. Even I drove to North-WA trying to get away from light pollution, still there's quite strong light on the bottom.Comments: Nice picture... the light pollution at the bottom seems to add to the image and gives detail on the landscape, yet fades off quickly enough to not overcome the details of the stars.. it works quite well together and makes it a more interesting image than just the stars alone.
Questions: What was the exposure and ISO?
I don't have a horse in the race, but I'm surprised at how disrespected the original 16-35 is. I'm also surprised at how respected the 17-40 is. I learn something new everyday.
I have a couple 64GB Sandisk Ultra 30mbps cards and a 16gb Sandisk Extreme 45mbps card, both cards cannot handle 1080p All-I or IPB. I have to knock it down to 720p if I want to record long videos on the SD cards. I can record up to 5 minutes tops before it automatically stops recording on those SD cards.
I have had quite the opposite experience. I have quite a few Sandisk Ultra and Extreme 8gb cards and they work flawlessly shooting 1080p at 24p, 30p, 50p, and 60p with IPB. As a matter of fact, I did three quick time lapse videos the other day and had my mkiii record at 1080p 24p with IPB for 27 minutes each onto different Sandisk Extreme 8gb 30mb/s cards, and not once did it give me a problem.
Sounds awesome. I wish I could do similar trips. When you're going? How detailed trip plan you already have, or do you just go around without much plan?
I fly on Nov 4 and I NEVER have a plan or reservations (other than airline). Serendipity rules. One issue I'm running into again is that Vietnam, Burma and China still won't let me cross their borders on my bike, so if I want to visit them, I have to fly in like everyone else. Any interest in meeting up in Yangon for a photo-tour of Myanmar?
I have to have a laptop too, which is why I carry the smallest one out there (11-in MacBook Air), because I write travel stories and design/post web pages from the road. This means doing basic sorting and image editing both for my website and for a newspaper I freelance for. I also upload my GPS tracks to LR4 on the laptop, so that I can encode each image with location data. I've been doing this for years and have developed an efficient workflow, so it doesn't draw much time away from the more important travel experience. In fact, spending so many months alone on the road, often not speaking the local language and confined to my tent at night (rain, bugs, middle of nowhere, etc.), I find looking through the day's catch enhances the experience and helps me learn what to do/not do the next day, with regards to photographic technique.
Oh, and there's not one cubic centimeter of space available for souvenirs--so my photos serve that purpose.
you would consider leaving the 1Dx at home?
Small portable solar panel to trickle charge your devices? Then you don't need to worry about power consumption.
I've looked into these, but the ones that put out adequate power are quite bulky and heavy. I can, depending on which bike I'm riding, charge a camera battery off of the engine while moving, but it's awkward and again, only possible on certain bikes.
