Cosmic Palette by CapturingTheNight Cosmic Palette by CapturingTheNight

Not sure if I like this image or not. Taken in a big rush two nights ago as a weak aurora display reached my location. Shot only minutes before the moon rose on the horizon washing out the faint aurora display. You can see that the Milky Way has already started to be washed out from the light of the moon. I didn't have time to find a better composition. The tree in the middle of frame is blocking some of the light pollution from a city about 100 km away.

Would love any and all feedback.

thank you very much your blog articles helped me a lot to understand night shooting and start gazing :) just one question can we take pictures with camera dmk41 without expensive lenses?? or telescopes.
what would be the result then. Sorry if I bother you, actually I'm so crazy for photography but limited resources :) Currently I got chance to use Olympus E500 with basic two lenses 14-40mm & 40-150mm.
I wish to get maximum out of it. Your photography is stunning.

The Dmk41 camera is a monochrome video camera designed for imaging through a telescope. Commonly used to take images of bright space objects like planets, The Moon and with a properly filtered telescope, The Sun. It is no good for fainter deep space things or widefiled images like the one above.

oh thanks for the guidance. It is so helpful for me. I have Olympus E500 with lenses 14-40 and 40-150, I have tried but my problem is lux pollution in my city and around. the nearest desert is around 12 hours away from my city. Even my home village got electricity now and I remember those old days without electricity in my village when I could observe the milky way and billions of stars.
