Grand Teton Milky Way

On the evening of August 20, 2017, the night before theĀ  total solar eclipse, I took my very first image of the Milky Way from Grand Teton National Park. This was accomplished with a Canon 40D and Tokina 11-16 mm f/2.8 wide angle lens. The camera was placed on a fixed tripod; I exposed for 20 seconds at ISO 1600, and repeated this a total of 25 times. The images were aligned and combined in PixInsight, then further processed in Photoshop (no darks or flats were used).
