took this one in lake powell, utah
16 minute exposure, 400 iso, 18mm, f:4.5
tell me what you think!
All I see is a red X...
Thats pretty crazy. I assume a run of the mill lens wouldn't be able to pull this off?
What are the sqwiggly looking lines near and intersecting the brighest star?
actually this is with the stock lens on the camera... the squiggly lines in the pic are me trying to get the camera where i want it when the shutter is open... or aliens!
Aliens sounds like the logical choice.
Wow cool shot! I've never been able to get very good results with star trails.
The only thing that bugs me is the amp glow in the top left, but I suppose there's nothing you can do about that. I'd also recommend bumping the ISO down to it's lowest setting.
Thanks for sharing!
I would've done it at the lowest iso possible.
You assume incorrectly. You can do it just about anywhere if you have a tripod, cable release and little to no light pollution *cough* NYC *cough* or hazy skies.
You'd also probably not want to do this when the Milky Way fills a significant part. Because you're doing trails, the Galaxy just looks like a broad, fuzzy cloud that - to me, at least - interferes with the rest of the composition.
A shorter exposure and/or lower ISO would help reduce the magenta glow in the upper left.
The magenta glow is probably the sensor getting hot. Try shorter exposures (maybe not longer than 10 minutes), with low ISO.
thanks a lot for all the replies next time i will try a lower iso and not pointing it at the milky way and see what kind of results i get
