Hey all,

 

So about an hour ago the city power went out. aside of my computer not wanting to turn back on after the blackout, I managed to snap a few photos! if you remeber a few threads back I wanted to do some astrophotograhy and came to the conclusion it wasn't worth it? Well I ended up buying good lens and that solved 90% of my problems.

 

Anyways the Photo is a link to a flash gallery if you want to see more of them. Also shoot me a PM if you want some help, I might have a few tips depending what you have.

Canon Mark 2. The camera is nice but you could get simliar results with a Ti 3/4 . shoot in Raw wide-RGB and some little tweaking .

If you lived in a darker local. you could snap a few 20-30 second images and use an image stacking program to make some killer images.

I did some test HDR images . Because stars move fairly fast most looks bury If you do that . I found a math equation in my astronomy classes that explains how long your maximum exposure can be with stars moving . For a 50mm lens its 12 seconds . I was using a 85mm at 10 which barely made it .

of course I could just exposure for the sky and than do a HDR of the ground, than photoshop them together , I didn't think of that unil now . next time I guess .

So what if you wanted to do something like have the tree stand perfectly still (not blurry) and wanted the sky to move without being discolored from the over exposure. 

 

Disclaimer: I know very little about photography. I have a canon rebel Xsi and I simply like to play around with it, so I do not actually know much about how to use the more advanced features when I need to take a pic of the night sky.
