About this image

Mucking around with a new Canon RP to see what it can do. This is (supposedly) a Canon 6D Mk II sensor in a mirrorless body. Images post-processed with the Lightroom "dehaze" filter; one artifact of this filter is that the sky background gets left behind around the trees.

I was hoping some NLC might show up, but no luck there.

These images were taken on a fixed tripod at ISO 1600, but I later decided a better compromise between star trailing and noise was actually at ISO 3200.
