Joshua Tree National park - Milky Way from White Tank Campground

Arch Rock isn’t the only thing to shoot at the White Tank campground in Joshua Tree National Park. Just past it lie some awesome rock formations. The MW was lining up perfectly so I used the path to lead the eye out. On the left is another somewhat well known rock formation known as the Wizard’s Eye and looks better facing the other way as you can see the hole. This shot is made up of 6 shots of the same composition all fired back to back using the same exposure. I stacked all 6 for the foreground to reduce the noise, and 1 for the sky using a noise reduction program and combined them to get a pretty noiseless final image. Stacking the sky requires a bit more work due to the rotation so as long as I can get similar results using noise reduction I opt for that instead. Nikon D750, Nikkor 14-24, f/2.8, 15 sec, ISO-6400
