Very nice. Would you mind sharing your post processing and the E-M1 setup (dark frame subtraction, etc.)?

Thank you oloap

I had the dark farm subtraction enabled in the camera and I processed the raw in Lightroom with a tone curve, noise reduction and temperature adjustments globally along with a brush on the milky way itself adjusting the highlights, saturation and clarity. This was my first Milky Way photo so I watched a few youtube videos to get the idea on how to process it, I didn't really follow any one but used some of the concepts I picked up by watching them.

Well done! This result is in the opposite of what many though was possible with the em1 a few months ago. Don't see any excess of noise and hot pixels at all. Good job:)

Looks good. A friend og mine shoots night skies and said that the noise from the EM1 sensor was unbearable. He bought my EM5 off me because it doesnt generate the noise.

I do have the latest firmware on my EM1 did they do anything to address the noise issue? This was my first real try at the milky way and it seemed pretty good up to ISO3200 on the noise, maybe I got lucky. I'll be trying some more shots in the next few weeks and we'll see if the results are similar.

Good image. Indeed it seems that the EM1 is capable of good night sky shots, contrary to what I have read from some discussions a few months ago.
