Summer Night Sky
Our skies are more dark-adjacent than actually dark, but in summer, it takes hours after the sun sets to get a sky even this dark.
If you don’t see stars, blame your monitor. :) To see them, you need to look at the images at 100%. Click once to open the image in a separate page, then click on the image again to see it at full size. Stars should be obvious at that point.
The horizon glow is to the west, but it isn’t light from the sun; that’s the direction of civilization and its lights.
Shot with Sony α1 with 14mm f/1.8 lens. Settings: 4 seconds, ISO 800, f/2.8. The Sony 14mm lens has zero coma even wide open, I was testing higher ISO settings so I went with a smaller aperture.
That is our back yard; I cropped out the yard because of all the lights, it was distracting.
