  • Very good photos. Lack of noise is apparent, allowing to process the picture towards increased contrast so that the Milky Way becomes more luminous. 30 sec at that focal length do not allow for ...
  • My summer lilies:
  • Here the moon rose a bit too soon re. to the sunset time and we had quite a bright sky, so I did some HDR pp Lens: Tamron AF 70-300mm F/4-5.6 Di LD Macro. August 2014 Perigee Moon (Supermoon) over ...
  • ICE failed, but CS5 did it :)
  • No, I included all lthe field in a single shot, every time. At this focal length, 30 sec exposure is not enough to register the Earth's motion, especially in a close distance.
  • Replied in K-30 vs K-50
    I am using 2 Pentax lenses: The kit lens DAL 18-55 f/3.5-5.6 adjusted to +8  and the DA 35mm f/2.4 AL adjusted to -3.

  • About settings: OGPS-1 on, camera in "Bulb", therefore in "Astrotacer" mode, exposure time 1 min 00 sec, camera set in manual focus. (in-camera Interval Shooting function is not operable in the ...
  • Thanks for your comment! That was a test on using those items combined, as I have already delivered startrails by using either the camera internal, or the external intervalometer. Next, I will try ...
  • Created discussions Star dots and trails
    This picture is the outcome of compiling 90 shots of 60 sec each, by using both the OGPS-1 and an external intervalometer. Camera in Astrotracer mode. The stars' motion, near the North Pole came ...
