Thanks for the kind words everyone

@dgdg - Thanks for the PM!

@Mr Grimm - I mostly shot at 1600 because the ISO is pretty clean on my D800 and I wanted to capture the max amount of stars without things getting too bright. I could probably get away with 800 though, I had to pull this down a bit to make it look right. However, it looked good at the time when I was shooting and with the temps where they were, I didn't want to experiment too much - just get the shots and get back

astrodave gave me some tips on luminance masking for this kind of thing. I sent you a pm on it but looks like his screen shot did not copy over. If you want the screen shot, pm your email to me.

Wow, quite an image Steve with all those stars. Very nicely done, especially with your first attempt. Don't know if anyone else has mentioned it, but I would have thought there would be more colors from the Milky Way with the long exposure. This image sure makes it tempting for me to whip out my tracking telescope mount and try the same.

This is some beautiful work! Having photographed stars in +30-degree weather while freezing my ass off, I can confirm that there were some difficulties in making this shot happen.

Thanks for the comments everyone!

@Tune Le - Thanks. Yeah, I was hoping for a bit more color, but I was fighting a crescent moon not too far away and I think it influenced the color a bit. I have a shot from messing around earlier in the trip of just the sky (no moon) where I did pick up more of the brownish color in the milky way.

Wonderful starscape against a fantastic landscape and a nice blend of the two! Jupiter, Orion, Sirius and Procyon very prominent in that cold winter sky.

I like the play between the stars and the dusting of snow here....really nice.

I have never seen so many stars in my life...so the image stands out to me. However I dont know if its believable because I have never seen anything like it. great work.
