Description

Springbok, Sudafrica.

Canon 6D, Canon 85mm f/1.8.

-2*10 sec, iso 12800, f/3.2;

-1*6 sec, iso 12800, f/3.2.

Only light frames (no dark, no flat).

An interesting widefield from the photosession of that night: again it's only a memory pictures, but the fast 85mm f/1.8 and the beautiful dark Sky made possible to bring at home this simple picture, shot with a tripod.

Many subjects here: Coal Sack Nebula (C 9, Running Chicken Nebula (C 100), Pleiadi Meridionali (C 102), Pin Cushion Cluster (C 91), Rich Man's Chest Jewel Box (C 97), the Longtail (NGC 4103) just to say some.
