Milky Way Vertical Panorama - Port Willunga by sa-nick86 Milky Way Vertical Panorama - Port Willunga by sa-nick86
My first try at a 180 degree vertical panorama. It's made up of 5 portrait images, all of which were shot at 11mm/f2.8 with a 35 second shutter.

Taken down at Port Willunga, South Australia with a 550D/Tokina 11-16 f2.8

nice job. Which tripod have you used? I am curious about your setup :)
Good that the tokina is already wideangle lens, with a normal lens it will be hard I guess, don't you think so? I guess it would need 4-5 shots more.

I don't have a crazy tripod yet but I'm saving for something better than the $40 one I currently have. [link]

ah i see a lot plastic, but it seems to be quite stable ;)

I have just recently bought some new one (a light weight alu one).

plus some not so big/expensive, but good in keeping Ballhead-HEAD for it.

I definitely want to try getting some stars / night sky shots. Right now we have a quite damn cloudy weather. We will see.

Thanks for the info! :)
Regards!

Yeah, it's fairly stable for what it is. Gets good height too.

I wouldn't be surprised if the pan/tilt knobs end up breaking off from over tightening though. But yeah, fairly stable, especially considering the insane amount of wind there was the night I took this.

The Velbon looks nice. I was planning on spending around $600 on a good video tripod (with a decent fluid head) that could double up as my new photography tripod too, but I'm starting to think I might need a dedicated photo tripod. Something like the Velbon would be good, and much easier to carry around than the big Manfrotto or whatever I end up getting for video.

This is a fantastic idea. I wouldn't have thought of a vertical panorama but it works really well. I get a little case of vertigo when I follow it to the top and see the mountains hanging there....but that's just me. Awesome shot! Thanks for sharing.

Awesome work! I've always been a proponent for wide angle for beginning astrophotography, and you have proven my theory with a $40.00 tripod. One of these days I will have to switch to digital, there's no way I could do that with film.

I was thinking last night that it'd be cool to make a series of these photos at different locations and different times of days. I was trying to come up with a title for the series and I incorrectly remembered your comment as having the phrase "two worlds", which is what I'm going to call it. Pretty close to what you said, so thanks for the inspiration there :D

Ooooh! You know what would be awesome? To do this kind of picture with cityscape in the part that becomes the upper half and with northern lights above it (or below I guess) and to name the picture 'Dust' :D Oooooh! I wish I knew how to do this now....
...hmm, this will have made no sense unless you are familiar with Philip Pullman's books His Dark Materials ^^;

Very pretty! :thumbsup:

I bet I'd need an above-average tripod for an experiment like that, not the cheap one I have. Maybe I should consider investing in one. ;)

It was only a $40 tripod. [link]

There are probably even cheaper ones that could do the job, I just bought this one because it can extend pretty high, which can come in handy.

I've made the experience that even cheaper ones are inferior in quality. They're often not that stable and break more easily...
Mine was a promotional gift and its head tends to tilt over with a camera attached to it. :XD:

but thanks for the tip. I've found the tripod is available over here, too. I'll keep it in mind. :)

Yeah this one hasn't been too bad so far, though I wouldn't be shocked if the tilt decides to stop working one day. Can't wait til I have enough cash to get something decent :D

[link] <--- That's what I have my eye on, but it's probably overkill for photography. I guess professionally I'm more of a video guy, it's what I'm trained in and actually get paid for and this tripod would suit it well. Photography is just a new (and expensive) hobby.
