A couple of nights ago, I was awake at 4 am and saw all the stars twinkling in the sky. I thought “Oh, a photo”. Ended up spending an hour taking pictures with an open window in the cold. And it was cold ! I stopped when I thought – I don’t want to get sick, let’s close that window. The best shot I got was this vertical one below:
Today I did the whole west side panorama. You really need the full view of the first pic to make the difference.
Ok the camera settings :
A small tripod on the window
Iso 800 * I didn’t want to go for star trails , so 30 secs was the maximum exposure that I thought would be ok to have the stars at their place.
f stop 5,6
30 secs exposure
timer on 2 seconds
Manual focusing with the help of the LCD screen ( see manual)
Do you blog? Every time I post something new , WordPress gives me numbers and a nice little quote.
This was my 112 post and the quote today was
“Dreams are illustrations from the book your soul is writing about you.Marsha Norman” .
It fits perfectly my post 🙂
And just as I finished this post, I had time to catch the last star before the sun makes it disappear .
