Ghost Ship and the Milky Way at Bombay Beach

Landlocked boat at Bombay Beach at the Salton Sea.

To produce this panorama, I shot 18 vertical frames at at f/2.8 30 sec ISO 3200 using a Canon 6D and Sigma 15mm EX DG. I then stitched the frames together in Photoshop.

The ship here was illuminated by some streetlights a couple of blocks away. This image is a bit more grainy than most of my Milky Way shots as it was over 100° F outside and digital cameras don't do so well when the image sensor is hot.
