HI there

Im looking for some advice on twilight photography (if thats what you call it). I want to take some photos of star filled skies. The equipment i have is a cannon 600d, a 18-55 cannon EFS kit lens, an 80-200mm cannon EF zoo lens, a 50mm prime lens and iv also got a macro lens with wide angle attachment. I have a good tripod and a remote. I also have a ND4 filter, UV filter and CPL filter. Now i know to use the tripod and remote so that there is no movement what so ever but with the equipment iv got whats the best combination with lens/filter/ISO/aperture.

Any advice is appreciated folks. Thanks,

Regards Dan

What part of planet Earth are you on?
I'm on a dry part that spins in conjunction with the planet. Convenient that way, otherwise you: (a) Drown, (b) change locations constantly depending on whether you are on a part going faster or slower than the rest of the planet, or (c) fly off into space. It sucks when gravity isn't there. :biggrin-93:

Where we are on our planet has significant implications for doing twilight astrophotography.
I would suspect that no matter what planet you are on the location would have significant implications for doing twilight astrophotography.
