Milky Way over Uluru
This image was captured during a recent 3 night visit to Uluru purely for astrophotography purposes. All 3 nights were clear and pristine; the amount of meteorite activity was just astonishing.; testament to just how dark it is there.
Camera: Canon 5D MKIII with Full Spectrum Modification
Lens: Canon 20-70mm at 24mm, f2.8. An IR filter was used for the landscape at dusk but the Milky Way did not rise until just after midnight. During acquisition, a 12nm clip filter was used with multiple exposures to capture the HII regions.
Mount: Vixen Polarie, Tripod Mounted
