The Telegraph on Milky-Way

The Telegraph on Milky-Way


The optical telegraph are installed on command of Napoleons. This one it the no. 20 on the line Metz to Mainz. And is located at the Napoleonshöhe next to Sprendlingen. Former they are used to communicate the Frensh Troops. Maybe now to contackt someone else somewhere else ;)

Nicely you see the Planet Vega above the Milky-Way.


This photo is the result of 20 exposures, each 140 seconds long, with an aperture of f3.5 at ISO 400 and a little help of a mechanical tracking system by Omegon, the Mini Track LX2. And another exposure is made of the foreground. I have used a Samyan 10mm f2.8 lense and a Nikon D7500. D7500


The 20 images of the Milky Way are merged with StaryLandScapeStacker, to get a bettet noice result and to aligne the images. Since the camera moves with the sky, the foreground had to be repositioned with AfinityPhoto.
