The image needs stretching. Your stars look good (not elongated)

Do you have Photoshop ?
or other software that can do Levels and Curves transformations ?

If you can you make the raw file available for download I will have a go for you.

This is a quick process using your low res jpg file. The data is there just needs pulling out.

Re: Milky Way

Agree with the above Henry keep taking frames the detail is there. The only thing I would suggest is that you frame your images away from trees to mountains if you can. The processing of these images will involve masking out the foreground in order to develop the Milkyway and trees can be a bit of a problem for all but the very experienced.

What setting did you end up usin?

I have one away from the trees.

My settings, M, f3.2, 25", iso1600 @7mm.

I also have at f2.8, and some at 30". And other settings.

Going out to shoot again in a short while. What else can I try?

Couldn't send any raw out yet. Limited bandwidth here.

You are doing everything you should be doing Henry I think you may be pleasantly surprised at what you have got when you are able to master the post processing. The only other thing I would try and capture is a set of frames (say 32) of just the sky and no landscape and perhaps at 14 mm 10 Sec iso 3200 f2.8. Landscape Milkyways are much more challenging in the processing. Good luck and clear skies.

10s iso 3200 will give it a try later.

Re: Milky Way

Your android processed image shows the detail you can get with over a minutes exposure from your location, unfortunately you cannot recover from tailing stars in a single image but go for multiple images and stack them 6 x 10 sec = 1 minute without star trailing. Bring back lots of short exposures you can do more with them.

Re: Milky Way

I processed this using software called Pixinsight.

It took three clicks to get this far. The lighter sky around the trees makes it tough to process without creating masks.

If I get some time I will try and get more out of the image you shared. It is really good data well done I am jealous of the location.

Wow. The brighter foreground aside, Are those red dots normal?

Heard some people talking on frequency mapping and stuff. What's that?

Re: Milky Way

Once you start stretching images everything can go wrong.
Red dots where you don't expect them plus more.

Frequency mapping is basically letting you choose what colour you want to see in your pic. Astrophotography post processing these days is about making it look like you want rather than a real visual representation of what actually out there. Welcome to the world of digital imaging.

All the Hubble photos you see are "adjusted" to make them look pretty. They are not what the human eye would see.

Re: Milky Way

More post processing. Bit more dramatic.
