An attempt at shooting the Milky Way

Milky Way at Summit Lake

Gregg and I have been talking about shooting the Milky Way, and we finally decided to head up to Summit Lake at the base of Mount Evans on a new moon night to try it out. We got up there around 8:30 and stayed until about midnight, when clouds started coming in.

I wasn’t very happy with my results. All I can say is that I need either new glass with a wide open aperture, a faster camera, a newer camera, or all of the above. The sensor in the D200 just doesn’t handle low light very well.

I’m really interested in seeing how Gregg’s pictures turned out, ’cause mine aren’t very appealing.
