This is my second attempt at trying to capture the stars. I really need to get away from the city to do this. Please don't mind the huge dust spec near the power wire. I can't believe I didn't notice it during previews. I think I was more worried about not being able to feel my hands due to the cold.
I originally planned on taking 15-20 photos after I found my subjects and trying to use DSS, but that series got canned after I seen a much larger smudge on the lens which showed up on the photos. I was really bummed about that.
I think next time if I don't make it out of the city, I'm going to trying zooming in a bit to avoid some of the surrounding light pollution and bumping ISO up to 3200 to make up for the shorter shutter speed. Good idea or no?
Here's the one photo I feel I was able to salvage. I ended up doing a bit of PP to bring out the stars. Hopefully it doesn't look too bad.
