 Under African Skies

Large Magellanic Cloud
30 x 1m exposures


All astrophotography images were taken with a Nikon D7100 and 85mm f/1.4 lens. Each of the images is a sum of one-minute exposures as indicated in the captions. The camera was mounted on a motor-driven platform to track the stars as they moved slowly across the sky.
