I got some beautiful dark skies in my recent trip to Brazil. I wish I had my star tracking mount with me...
I hope you like it. - Fred

I like it, why didn't you bring the mount with you? That stupid 'astro' thread cost me almost $2000, lol

That is great Fred. I was in the mountains (12,000 ft) of Peru last week, and saw some incredible skies at night. Sadly, I had no tripod, and I only had a 50/1.2L. I didn't get an opportunity to shoot the skies, but did spend a lot of time looking up

Awesome shots Fred. Did you light paint the foreground or was it lit by moonlight?

Hey Fred,

You got some super shots here, really sweet star shots. I am thinking #2 is my favorite, though I do really like #1 also.

The Summer X-Games will be there in a couple days!

They were building the skate platform in front of my hotel. I took some pictures of the construction:

Somehow the starts look different Fred. Pretty just the same though.

Those are pretty sweet images Fred. You're getting to see a part of the sky that I only wish that I could see, the southern hemisphere, the Southern Cross, coal sack nebula and Alpha and Beta Centauri. Not to mention the large and small Magellanic clouds. But I guess you didn't get a chance to image those. For not having the Astro track with you to image the sky better, these turned out really nice. Your subject framing is sweet. I will be going to the Texas star party on May 4 through May 12 and I hope to get some really good Milky Way shots from out there. I have done so in years past, but I have yet to get a really good Milky Way shot with my Nikon D800/E cameras. My plan is to do a mosaic of the Milky Way using my 85mm lens.

Anyway, I really like your images they turned out very nice. Hopefully you will have time to share more.

Same here. I spent a lot of time sky-gazing. It was really exciting to see the southern cross, orion nebula and the milky way with the naked eye.
Take care,
Fred

Thanks Harsha,
It was 'New Moon' so moon illumination was very close to zero. I used a dimmable flashlight and a warm color gel to lit the foreground at an angle for only a few seconds during the exposure.
