Hey everyone, it's been brought to my attention that I said Nikon D7200 throughout this video when in actuality I was using the Nikon D7100 to take these pictures. My bad, once I said the first time it was stuck in my head! Regardless, they are both similar in low light performance with the D7200 having a slight edge over the D7100… so this video still helps illustrate how stacking DX sensors images helps drastically improve the quality of your night image!

Dimitrios Alexandris says:

I have watched a ton of Milky Way photography tutorials, but I have to say this was the most well explained. Kudos buddy, keep em coming 🙂

Robby Mcelroy says:

Has anyone tried this on a Canon EOS M50

Judah Nuel Pamisa says:

Very nice video bro but I have a question. What is the difference between the five photos?

For some reason…. the stacking process never worked and all I got was a chaotic stacked image… what do I do wrong? I tried using the Lightroom lens correction on and off… also turning it on and off in my a7iii. Lens is 16-35gm.

D7200 n D7100 aren't crop sensor cameras

Phil Marcelino says:

Thanks for the awesome video. Started to recently to take photography more seriously and I only have a crop camera (Nikon D3300) and stock lens. I tried some milky way photography a few years ago and it came out a good for a first attempt at it. Can't wait to get out there and try out your pointers here. Thank you
