Sony A7S, canon film lens (50mm f/1.4 FD)
I shot this using a old Canon film lens, 50mm f/1.4 stopped down to f/4. The sky is a stack of 90x8s images, while the foreground is a stack of 3x30s images. I manually aligned the reflected stars in the tide pools, in Photoshop.
I've always believed that the Large Magellanic Cloud was only visible from the southern hemisphere. Walking along the coast of Neil Island, and I noticed this faint bright patch along the horizon. My sky map showed that the Large Magellanic cloud was barely 10 degrees above the horizon, below the bright star Canopus. I immediately set up my camera, and took a long exposure to see if I could capture it. The sky was lit with brilliant airglow, within which a bright density of stars. So thrilled to have shot this!
