Re: FZ1000, Perseids, 500 Rule, which focal length to use?

A typical star/Milky-Way exposure is f/2.8(3) @ ISO-3200 @ 30-seconds.

I remember it as 3@3@3.

If you want to use 6400-ISO you can use 15-seconds.

Although my first attempt at time lapsed nighttime photography didn't work, I somehow did capture one night sky image.  That image looked pretty good in the monitor. Starts were clear dots and there was no star trailing. With a 25mm lens, I used 20 sec exposures, every 60 sec, for 200 shots.  I originally had the iso set at 3200, but got nervous that the setting may have been too high, so I reset to 1600.  Will be trying again tonight and hopefully I can get the time lapse to work properly.
