Milky Way reflecting over my backyard pond in Lee, Maine on June 19, 2014, 11:11 PM.

I went out to shoot a timelapse of sunset, the Milky Way reflecting in my pond, and moonrise last night. I ran into a lot of battery and cable issues and didn’t get the full timelapse I wanted, but I still salvaged a few good frames. This was taken a little after astronomical twilight (23:02) and before moonrise (47% at 00:07) when the sky was at its darkest. There was a lot of beautiful air glow last night, and a crazy amount of dew. The light on the grass and trees is from my kitchen window.

Shot with a Nikon D700, 14-24mm f/2.8, Ramper Pro, & DewBuster dew heater controller w/ Dew-Not heater strip @ 14mm, f/2.8, ISO 3200, 30 seconds. Edited with Lightroom.
