From Mike about this image:
TRACKED AND STACKED
-Bonsai Rock Under The Stars-
One of my favorite places I finally had a chance to visit this year. There is so much to do around Lake Tahoe, like water sport, winter sports, gambling, hiking and most importantly taking photos of gorgeous scenery!
I typically use my iMac for editing stacked images and a program called Starry Landscape Stacker which really helps reduce noise and maintain sharpness. However, SLS is for Apple computers only until I came across SEQUATOR.
This program is very similar to SLS. The results were practically identical and this seems to be a great alternative for PC users. Oh... and did I mention, it's FREE:
I did a quick tutorial on how to use the software and how it looks compared to SLS for those interested:
Sky: Tracked and Stacked - Nikon D800 14mm ISO 3200 F3.5 Shutter 30 seconds (5 photos stacked with Sequator)
Foreground: Nikon D800 20mm ISO 1250 F4 Shutter 180 seconds (4x stacked)
