I reworked this image from last spring including an addition half hour of exposures. A more gentle exposure stretch preserves dynamics and brings out colors. Terlingua Texas ghost town is the perfect spot to image Omega Centauri, a globular cluster believed to be the remains of another galaxy consumed by the Milky Way long ago. I found a spot down in the gully behind our cabin for this POV. Sony NEX-5N with vintage Vivitar 135mm lens on a Vixen Polarie tracking mount. Exposed March 14, 2016 at ISO 3200 for 30 sec at f 5.6 with 118 images stacked. Foreground image illuminated by open cabin door exposed for 15 sec at ISO 3200. Stacking in Nebulosity. HDR composite in Photoshop.
