Re: Astro Photo Question (trying this forum)...

At the risk of usurping the OP's question, I have tried a couple of astro tests.  First, technical technique, then on to real photos.  I have found that 30 seconds at F2 with the Z9  and 20 mm F1.8 and ISO 200 shows a lot of bright stars, but no tracking to speak of.  Also, there is no sense of a multitude of stars, as in the Milky Way.  Am I underexposing and need to up the ISO to get a more dramatic effect?  Also, is stacking required compared to a single shot?  Will keep experimenting until I get an attractive effect.  Would appreciate any helpful comments>
