The tree at Valensole France

When photographing lavender fields an area of interest, such as a tree or an old stone building (mas) helps to improve the picture. Milky Way arc on the Valensole plain, near Puimoisson, Provence. I was surprised to be able to photograph a Milky Way arc so late in the season! Taken with the iOptraon SkyGuider Pro and Fujifilm X-T2 Samyang 8mm Fisheye, ISO 6400 f/2.8 240 seconds, foreground same setup, same time, however with SkyGuider turned off. Both pictures were taken at the same location, the same equipment, within 240 seconds.
Thank you very much for your suggested change. We will check it as soon as possible and update this spot.

HI Astrid, Did you buy or rent the SkyGuider? Either way, the effect is amazing; I want to try this. Thanks for sharing.

Hi Edward, I own it. Yes, it really makes a difference. I took a 8min photo of the sky from my roof terrace in an urban environment, with a wonderful milky way. Difficult to believe.

Its an investment that is clearly paying off, they're just great. I think I'll start dropping Christmas present hints to my family.
