Astrophotography
« on: August 23, 2017, 11:04:32 AM »
Anybody else dabble in astrophotography? I picked up a Rokinon 2.8/14mm for this and am giving it a go while I'm living here in South America. Lets start with these [2] and Ill add more later, just getting started so any tips are always helpful! These were taken at f2.8 around 25 seconds I believe.

Very cool!!  Looking forward to more.

My second attempt. Hiked out to a lake here called Lago Escondido (Hidden Lake) as we have clear skies and no moon so I took the opportunity to take some photos. The first pic is my first attempt at a Panoramic. Its 12 photos stitched together. The rest I messed around with a little light painting etc...

All photos were taken with a 30 second shutter speed, F2.8 ISO 800 on a Rokinon 14mm 2.8

Heres a bit of an idea of whats going on in the largest cluster that you can see from Stellarium. Saturn is the easiest to pick out in the photos, as well as Antares.
