The Milky Way in Sagittarius and Scorpius, low in the south, over Mt. Rundle in Banff, Alberta, from the shore of Two Jack Lake, June 3, 2016. Saturn is the bright object at upper right, then in Ophiuchus just above Scorpius. Some thin cloud fuzzed the images of Saturn and stars. The foreground is partly illuminated by car headlights, to light up the green landscape. Wind made the water rough and unreflective.<br />

This is a stack of 4 x 25 second exposures (mean combined to smooth noise) for the ground and a single 25-second exposure for the sky, untracked but with just slight trailing. All at f/2.2 with the 35mm lens and Canon 6D at ISO 3200. Shot as part of a 280-frame time-lapse and star trail sequence, though that was partly ruined by the car headlights. Here they help somewhat.
