All the way - Milkyway

A 6 image vertical pano of our milkyway galaxy. This was shot a while ago on 16th Aug 2015 from Tongariro National Park while Jonathan and I were returning to auckland from Stellarfest-15. The image also shows light pollution, air glow and slight gravity waves. The one on right is light pollution and the one on left is light pollution along with air glow.


Never got to process this image. So now that i am on holiday and did not get much to shoot, decided to process this beautiful image. This images shows milkyway all the way from southern tip to north (South is Left) from Eta Carina to the Great Rift.


This is probably the most of milkyway that can be seen from New Zealand at one given time. Being August, this is the time when the galactic core is overhead and is the best time for people to drive out into the dark and enjoy the stars.
