    ISO 1600. And yes, I pushed the stack. Here is a stack of 54 with a little more natural coloring.

    That second one is much better, as far as noise goes. πŸ™‚ I asked just to make sure, I wondered if maybe the RAW conversion process was pushing the exposure and adding noise, or something like that. Are these stacked from RAW files, or .jpg files?

    RAW.

    OK, now with a year of experience under my belt, I try again at the Milky Way. I was using a 7D this time instead of the XS, but the same lens.
    I shot 30 Raw frames at:
    ISO 6400
    F/3.5
    10 sec
    18mm
    Then, I ran them through a few editing programs, thanks to @buddingphotographer for the code!!! And then finished the editing in Lightroom. Next I combined the foreground in GIMP. This is the finished picture.

    Wow, that’s quite an improvement! πŸ™‚ I’m sure the higher quality sensor makes a difference, as well as better shooting and processing techniques. Good job!
