Bear with me on this one. We were camping in the woods, and the stars were incredible. I grabbed my camera, and did my first attempt at photographing the stars. I can tell it's going to take some playing with the camera setting to improve my photos, but I was having a lot of fun.
Pictured here is the big dipper. I didn't realize there were so many other stars that you cannot see with your eye The camera picked up several others that are beyond the dipper that I couldn't see. This exposure is for 5 minutes, so there is a shift as the earth rotates. Also not the air plane that went by on the upper left corner.
- I don't know anything about shooting stars yet, but found if very interesting. It took me a while to even get one star to appear.
- The sky is much bigger than I thought. It really requires a wide angle lens.
