Astrophoto: Night Sky by Sam Crimmin

Sam Crimmin captured this panoramic image of the Milky Way from Grytviken (an abandoned whaling station) May of this year. It looks back on the lights of King Edward Point Research Station.

This image is a combination of three photos stitched together. Sam took the photos using a Canon 5D MK II camera and a 17-40mm f4.0 L series lens. The settings used for this photo are f/4 exp 25sec.
