    Just got back from vacation on the beach, there was one clear night which I used to do this (15mm lens):

    It's a composite (duh..) of long exposures for the trails (about 4 minutes each, ISO 800), with a burst of 13-second ISO 2000 images in the middle which are stacked. The humidity created a ton of haze which I was only partially successful in removing. The trial along the bottom is someone carrying a flashlight.

    It's not quite as good as I hoped to achieve, but it's good enough for now.

    And here's a 7-image panorama, taken with my 85mm. The original is 10k x 10k pixels.

    I like composites ... great for some artistic fun :smile:

    I bought a Samyang 14mm ultra wide angle lens last weekend. Just awaiting full Moon to be over and gone and then get out and do some Milky Way pix
