FINALLY!!!!! I got a clear night. Shot this last night in Algonquin Park, Ontario, Canada....

BTW, what software do people use to image-stack pictures like this? I tried registax but I was only able to make the image worse.....

nice shot

I use IRIS, it's old and it's last update was I think 3 or 4 years ago, but it's free.  Registax would be my usual advice.

IRIS is like wading through treacle to drive it but it's so powerful you can do almost anything with it..

With wide field images it's very easy to make things much worse (sky gradients, forground confusing things, clipped stars etc, so many stars it can't align images and so on)

I assume you are stacking raw or TIFF images and not jpegs.

Amazing vista, but if I may, I'd love to see it with a less blue white balance.

Beautiful. Great shot, Keith.

Thank you Click.  I am really liking the Sigma 14mm Art.  It is the easiest lens to manual focus on a star.  The Rokinon 14mm is good at focusing, but the Sigma seems to be at least twice as fast to snap a star into critical focus manually.

Superb colour!
Thanks scyrene  :)  This was actually an early test shot before I did some light painting.  The warmer tones are much better for the natural colors of the landscape there.

I am very envious - what an amazing place to be! Except maybe the scorpions ;)
