Nighttime Escapades

August 05, 2016  •  Leave a Comment

Summer in Washington is a crazy time for astrophotographers like myself. Every month during the new moon we get a couple of days to race around the state losing sleep to hone our craft capturing the milky way. We can only do this during the summer as the milky way's position changes throughout the year and during the winter we are unable to see the core. The core is the brightest, creamiest part of the milky way. To photograph the milky way I am using two different Rokinon prime lenses, a 14mm f/2.8 and a 24mm f/1.4. The 24mm is a recent edition and I am in love with the amount of light that lens captures. In the past month I have traveled to Mount Baker, the North Cascades, and Mount Rainier. The weather hasn't always been clear, but I have had a blast just the same. Here are a few images from my recent travels.
