Campfire at NEOC

A 43% moon rises to the left behind our campfire while the Milky Way shines to the right at New England Outdoor Center on October 13, 2017, 00:40. I set the camera in the shadow of a large pine tree lit by one of the cabins for this panorama; I liked the sharp patterns of the shadows across the lawn.

The full 360° panorama can be explored here:

Camera settings: 14mm, f/2.8, ISO 2500, 20 seconds (single exposures).

Stitching data: 2 rows of 6 images for a total of 12 photos. This is a 3:1 crop from a 360 panorama.

Equipment used: Nikon D850, Nikon 14-24mm f/2.8, Nodal Ninja RD16-II, and Really Right Stuff TVC-34L tripod, leveling base, & pano/gimbal head. Edited in Lightroom, aligned with PTGui, and blended in Photoshop. Nadir patched with Pano2VR.
