The view looking south at Herbert Lake, Banff National Park, Alberta, with the Milky Way over Mount Temple and the peaks of the Continental Divide. Mars (left in clouds) and Jupiter (right) flank the Milky Way, while Saturn sits within the Milky Way. A couple of satellites and possibly a meteor (it could be a flaring satellite) punctuate the sky as well. <br />
<br />
The sky is blue with the last vestiges of twilight and from moonlight from the setting waxing Moon off frame at right. <br />
<br />
This is a four exposures for the ground mean combined to smooth noise, and one exposure for the sky and reflections, all 30 seconds with the Laowa 15mm lens at f/2 and Sony a7III at ISO 3200.

Stellar Reflections at Herbert Lake

The view looking south at Herbert Lake, Banff National Park, Alberta, with the Milky Way over Mount Temple and the peaks of the Continental Divide. Mars (left in clouds) and Jupiter (right) flank the Milky Way, while Saturn sits within the Milky Way. A couple of satellites and possibly a meteor (it could be a flaring satellite) punctuate the sky as well.

The sky is blue with the last vestiges of twilight and from moonlight from the setting waxing Moon off frame at right.

This is a four exposures for the ground mean combined to smooth noise, and one exposure for the sky and reflections, all 30 seconds with the Laowa 15mm lens at f/2 and Sony a7III at ISO 3200.
