In last two moon windows for photographing the milky way I experienced a combination of bad luck and little time. I went out to photograph the milky way a few times, but each time there was nothing but clouds despite the good weather forecast. So yesterday, when it was clear skies I decided to try my luck. A friend and I arrived during blue hour and scouted a few locations. I set up my tracker before the end of astronomical twilight because I wanted to get as many shots as possible as my time was limited due to the early moon rise. I usually don't take my foreground shots during astronomical twilight, but this time I had no other choice since I didn't want any moon light in the foreground. This is the first time that I did a focus stack at night, I'm pretty pleased with how it turned out.
