First time post on this forum, hopefully many more to come.
I finally upgraded to the Canon T3 from the XSi only for the fact that it is able to go upto ISO 6400.
Here is the resulting photo, playing around of the RAW file was needed to bring out the milky way.
Details: Canon T3, Sigma Ultrawide 24mm @ f/2.8 ISO 6400
RAW image was edited in Photoshop CS5, noise was cleaned up in Neat Image
