This is (almost) the milky way arch panorama I had wanted to take four years earlier at this spot



NIKON Z 7 + 14.0 mm f/2.4 @ 14 mm, 15 sec at f/2.4, ISO 4000 x 10 Frames

Note: These photographs (especially the wider shots) look much better when larger. To see larger versions in an inline overlay slideshow gallery viewer click any of the images.

You may be wondering why I titled this “Irreconcilable”

The reason is that the more perceptive of you may be wondering how on earth I’ve shot this. With the milky way in the sky whilst also appearing to have sunrise in the shot

That would of course not be possible – the sun would totally wash out the stars

What appears to be the sun here behind the tree is actually a sliver of rising moon at the horizon

In a few minutes it too would wash out the sky hiding all the stars 🙂

Thankfully this time around I also had my multi row pano rails with me for this two rows of five (5) frames for the complete milky way arch
