I have wanted to do a Milky Way Pano for quite some time now. This is my first attempt at it and I'm not sure about the end result. I think this looks to scrunched together and the horizon is not quite level but I guess everyone has to start somewhere and learn from there. I do believe it would be easier to do this shot with a full frame camera to be able to get the wider angle.
Here is the info on the shot. 12 vertical images merged in CS5 and then I played with the warp a bit and then did a large crop to cut out all of the empty spaces. I then used Lightroom 5 to do the final processing and adjustments. Each of the 12 shots was taken with a Nikon D7000, Tokina 11-16mm f2.8 lens, at 11 mm and f2.8 for 30 seconds with ISO 3200.
Any suggestions would definitely be welcome.
