Nikon Df - Astrophotography - milky way
Hi all. Just got a new Nikon Df (upgrade from Nikon D7000) and wanted to test it for astrophotography. This is my first test of the milky way https://www.flickr.com/photos/muitosabao/14392332147/in/photostream/ from two nights ago, in germany.
It was a very clear night. On this shot used a sigma 70mm 2.8, ISO 6400, 20sec. Stacked around 20shots in Mean mode in photoshop.
The traking was done using Vixen Polarie, so the tracking is not 100% perfect, and this shows a bit in a bit of dragging in the stars after adding the 20 shots together. In the individual frames the stars look better. Will try to align the shots in next experiment.
But overall, amazing impression with the Nikon Df. A beast in low light!
