Moonlight and Milky Way Over Cochiguaz

Moonlight and Milky Way Over Cochiguaz

Cochiguaz, Chile

Moonrise over Cochiguaz Valley (Valle de Elqui), Chile

Several world class observatories very nearby. I´m still traveling (without a computer) so this image is basically straight out of the camera… a bit of contrast, resize and no PS ¨funny business¨ at all… the skies were just that amazing.

Nikon D600
30s f/4.0 at 18.0mm iso3200 full exif

other sizes: small medium large original

Sam -- the advantages of very dry thin air. Amazingly it's not just less light pollution, the stars are actually brighter by about a stop then when I've shot them in "dark skies" in the east coast. I was able to walk around by the light of the MW and stars with the 1/2 moon no where near rising!

Cool capture, Pablo. Lol on your PS funny business remark. Amazing to see so many stars so on the horizon.
