The Great River In The Sky by CapturingTheNight The Great River In The Sky by CapturingTheNight
:icondonotuseplz::iconmyartplz: Greg Gibbs. You may not use, replicate, manipulate, or modify this image without my permission. All Rights Reserved.

I have been meaning to do a vertical panorama of the Milky Way stretching overhead for a while now but this is my first attempt. Made up of 10 individual shots using a Canon 60D and a Tamron 10-24mm @ 10mm. Images stitched together in PS CS3. I had a hard time deciding which way to orrient this but decided on this composition as if you are lying flat on your back gazing at the stars and you can turn your head to the left or right to the horizons. On the left (southern) horizon you can see a small amount of light pollution form a city about 60 miles (100 km) away. The redder haze on both horizons is caused by smoke in the atmosphere. A lot of people are burning off their fields around here lately.

Another Milky Way Panorama from me

This is incredible.
Cliche as it sounds, when you are actually out there looking at this, you really do feel tiny. Isn't it great that we are able to capture things like this?
This blows me away. Awesome pictures man :)

(If you could point me towards any good walk-throughs or similar instructional videos on how to achieve this panoramic using PS CS5, it would be greatly appreciated)

Thank you very much. I'm glad you like it :D PS stitching for this one was pretty easy because I wasn't trying to have a straight horizon. Simply load all the images into PS (this is for CS3 what I use). Go to File> Automate > Photomerge > Add open files > You could try one of the automodes and see if it can do it for you or you can do what I like to do and that is select interactive layout> you can then position the shots how you want them to line up and then click ok and sit back and watch your pano come to life. If it doesn't stitch the way you want then you can play around with the individual layer masks to hide/unveil the sections you want. Hope this helps. I'm pretty much self taught so I'm sure there are better ways to do things, but this is how I do it. Never looked at any particular tutorials..
