A New Dawn by CapturingTheNight A New Dawn by CapturingTheNight

Mt Buffalo National Park, Australia. 7/02/2016

Spent a night out at my favorite place to sit and watch the world go by last weekend. I wanted to catch all the unaided eye planets and the rising central bulge of the Milky Way in the one panorama. With a crescent Moon rising on the horizon and slightly lighting up the landscape I had to work fast before the sky got too bright from the approaching dawn.

There are six planets in this image. Can you spot them all?

20 image panorama. Canon 6D, 24mm, F/2, ISO 6400, 15 second exposures.

Thank you so much :D  This was done using a standard camera and standard tripod so no telescope needed for this sort of thing, but best of luck with your telescope based photography.  Always nice to have friends with resources like that.

Would I be able to do something like this  Canon650D 18-135mm lens? I would love to get photos like this.

Yes you would be able to get something like this.   Your image would be noisier than mine as your camera is not as good as handling such high ISO but apart from that you will be able to capture the stars well.

Nope, I can't spot them because, having learned the night sky of the northern hemisphere, I'm completely disoriented here.  But it does look like you caught some aurora there as well!
