Description

Another nightscape image from a trip out west to Arizona and Utah this past April. This view is from the town of Springdale, UT just outside Zion National Park taken in the direction of West Temple. Clouds were starting to roll in along with some haze that made for some interesting stars in this image.

Imaged using a Nikon D750 and 28-300 mm Nikon zoom at 68mm and F4.8. Exposure was 6 seconds at ISO-12800. Stacked 11 images using Sequator (autobrighness = off, hdr=on, noise reduction = on, light pollution reduction = on). Post-processed stacked image in PixInsight: background neutralization, color calibration, Histogram transformation, HDR multiscale transformation.
