Picture of my 2012 JKUR under the Milky Way

I went out to Joshua Tree National Park to do some celestial photography, and decided I needed a picture of my Jeep with the Milky Way above. Just thought I'd share it with ya'll...

No, I used my flashlight to "paint" it.

That is really SWEET! Ive done some light painting in my day, but never anything celestial... what kind of equipment does it take to track the stars like that??

None, it was only a 20 sec exposure. The camera was tripod mounted. There is a tiny bit of blur, streaking, in the stars, due to the earths rotation, but it's only realy visable if you zoom in on the picture.

cool, I didnt know you could get the milky way to show up with only a 20 sec. exposure. do you have to be at high elevation and what kind of ISO were you using?

Settings were...

ISO 3200
f/2.8
20 sec

I don't know what the altitude is at Joshua Tree, but you could look it up.

Great pictures. I love night pictures when the stars are out. I haven't tried the painting method yet, and I need a better tripod.
