    Over the weekend, I brought this portable tracking EQ mount with me to Long Point Provincial Park in Ontario. The conditions were perfect for capturing a long exposure photograph of the Milky Way.

    The final image is 20 x 30-second exposures using a Canon EOS 7D DLSR with an EF 17-40mm F/4L Camera lens. The images were stacked and processed in Adobe Photoshop.

    Total Exposure: 10 Minutes
    ISO: 6400
