    ya that extra stop will come in handy. 18mm will be a little tight though but then again, I find it easier to stitch into pano with it than with fisheye.

    the sky was so clear last night that decided last minute to head out to try to shoot some meteor but no luck after 2 hours

    the moon was very high in the sky

    The skies were not too bad in USJ last night. But unfortunately, it got hazier after 2.00 am, so blew the chances of a successful Perseid capture. I decided to call it a night, thought not much point waiting until 4-5 am for more shooting stars.

    I grabbed this before midnight, and surprise, surprise, the barest hint of the Milky Way!

    Considering I was shooting practically under a street lamp (that's the glare coming from the left), it goes to show that shooting Milky Way from USJ is not as difficult as thought. Will try again next coming weekends with the Moon out of the way. A 12mm f2.0 Samyang should do a better job at reducing those star trails compared to my standard 16mm f3.5. Alternatively, I might try shooting at ISO100 on a GOTO mount, which IMHO is additional hassle, but won't add to my gadget costs.

    You still have plenty of MW pics in your collection to reminisce on.

    I know this isnt a stunning shot but the reason for this picture is simple..... i basically am unable to see the milky way from my home as there is too much light pollution around. However, while i was looking at the straight line of Saturn, Mars and Antares, i looked a bit to the left and noticed the "teapot" so i knew Milky Way would be right there. In this picture , merely to show what i can see... i did try to get the milky way a little . So if you look carefully, you can see a hint of it.
    P/S: If anyone is wondering where the straight line of Saturn, Mars and Antares... it is between the tree and the tip of the roof.
    Insecurity is unattractive. Smile and the whole world smiles with you.
