    Hi Chris:
    Thanks! I used 24mm with about 10 shots that are then stitched together. You can see the details here ... https://flic.kr/p/Lk9AK5

    Definitely need a tripod for these milky way shots that requires 10-30 second exposures.

    My wife and I just returned from our first, but not our last, trip to Bonaire. What an amazing island.
    After seeing gcachon's milky way picture here on Bonaire Talk I knew I had to try to get one also. Up here in Canada there is way too much light polution to get a nice clear picture.
    I did my research on sunset and moonrise times as well as the direction of the Milky Way so I would be all set when we got there. I headed out to Willenstoren Lighthouse before sunset and found a spot similar to where gcachon set up for his shot, got all my setting set and waited for dark skys.
    Once the sun set it was darker than I had ever experienced before and I was really exited to finally catch the entire arch of the Milky Way. Unfortunately Mother nature did not want me to get a shot as a large cloud bank moved in almost as fast as the sun went down. I waited for 3 hours but the clouds never cleared for more than a couple of seconds and before I knew it the moon was up and my opportunity to shoot the Milky Way was over and I was heading home in the morning.
    I'll be back again in February and try again. Maybe I can still shoot part of the Milky Way
