Weathering The Test Of Time by CapturingTheNight Weathering The Test Of Time by CapturingTheNight

'The Rock' is a large outcrop of mainly quartzite that rises 360m above the Riverina plains of southern NSW, Australia. It was originally called 'Hanging Rock' after the large boulder which overhang the eastern face (left), but when this boulder, well, stopped hanging in 1874, the name of it (and the town that resides next to it) was changed to simply 'The Rock'.

I have had this shot planned for quite a while but I had to wait until I had the right moon phase, weather and time of year. Shot at about 2am this morning with a last quarter moon just rising on the horizon behind me. 14 shot panorama.

Nice shot
What camera settings/set-up do you use? I have an SLR but I've never gotten a star pic worthy of sharing

Nice shot as usual, Greg! I'm amazed at the horizontal positioning of the Milky Way down there; here, as shown by some of my own recent pics, the summer Milky Way is vertical, rising straight out of the eastern horizon, streaming overhead, and falling into the west with Sagittarius.
