Behind the Image: An Astro Photo 2 Years in the Making [VIDEO]

A look into the effort of a single astro photo…and how it can pay off!

by Alyn Wallace

Living in the Northern hemisphere, I’m always on the hunt for some nice south facing compositions so that I can incorporate the galactic core of the Milky Way into the shot. I found this viewpoint around 2 years ago and have had to wait just as long for the right conditions as there’s only a short window of the year, during the new moon period of July and August, where you can get this shot. It was such a rush to finally capture it and turn my vision into a reality, especially after a number of hikes ruined by bad weather!
