How to take photos of stars?
4 months ago

Hello

I am trying to take photos of stars. I want to have stars on dark bacground but instead I am having them on light bacground

How do I get something like this? I mean clean colors and dark bacground?

Here I have bright (burnt) background, and if I would use barndoor tracker for longer exposures then I would get even more burnt images. Basically this image looks like the longer exposure would end up with solid color white image and not with more details of milky way.

Here is link to my image for this site does not show it.
