This is a composite panorama shot at Yosemite national Park October 2019 at about 11 pm. The rest of the photography group I was with had tired after a long day shooting fall colors. Everyone was anxious to leave as dawn and the next photo shoot would come all too soon. As they were packing the cars, I fired off a series of 6 shots as quick as I could, shooting blindly overhead in the dark and not having enough time to bracket for a separate foreground exposure. Although grainy, I am very pleased with the results. It’s also fun that I caught the Andromeda Galaxy.
