Photo of the Milky Way with Noise Reduction

Photo of the Milky Way created from 30 stacked photos.

I shot a time lapse last night and got some pretty nice pictures of the Milky Way. The photo pictured above was created from 30 photos, with a median stack. Shot at 3200 ISO, a single image had a decent amount of noise.

A single photo of the Milky Way with noise.

Notice the amount of image noise in the darker areas. I added some noise reduction, but it still looked kind of janky around the edges.

Enjoy!
