Photo of the Week for June 16, 2017
Summer is the season for leisurely exploring the Milky Way far from city lights. Here in Canada, we’re fortunate to have several designated dark-sky preserves where the night sky can be enjoyed in its full glory. One such location is Kejimkujik National Park in Nova Scotia, where Dave Chapman captured this photograph of the Milky Way shimmering above the waters of Kejimkujik Lake.
Dave used a Samyang 14mm f/2.8 wide-angle lens and Canon EOS Rebel SL1 DSLRE camera on a iOptron SkyTracker Pro camera mount for this 3-minute exposure at ISO 1600.
