Milky Way @ Gurnigel, Switzerland (1593m)

30 seconds, A7III with Samyang 8mm F2.8 @ F4. Yes, this is an APS-C lens on a full frame camera - to have larger pixels / lower noise, as higher resolution here does not help. Largest challenge was Chroma noise, ether hot pixels or when star is focused into a single pixel and it's impossible to recover real color of the star. To fix that I just reset all unusually high & sharp Chroma values to neutral.

Light pollution is visible on the horizon (left side) - it's from the nearest city, Thun - 13km away.
