Re: Milky Way

I've spent quite a bit of time trying to get good Milky Way photos with EM1.2 and never really been very satisfied, and I'm lucky enough to live somewhere with very low light pollution.This is fairly typical of what I've managed to get in a single exposure (this was taken in December - it never gets dark enough at this time of year for us to see the Milky Way. The wrinkly appearance of the sky is due to the phenomenon of air glow - it's relatively uncommon to see it as clear as this) )
EM1.2, 7-14mm Oly at 7mm, 30s f2.8 ISO 6400:

I think you do need a bigger sensor to really get the detail, or possibly I'll need to have a good look at image stacking, which I've not yet tried.
