How I Photograph the Milky Way in the Light-Polluted Skies of Singapore

ng1

When it comes to photographing the elusive Milky Way in one of the most light-polluted major cities like Singapore, timing is critical.

Update: The extension’s creators have emailed us with some corrections, which have been applied throughout the post. See bottom for details.


RAW image files are wonderful in almost every regard.
