I never go beyond 30 seconds at 14mm, or 20 seconds at 24mm (full frame) if you want sharper stars. I still get trailing at those exposures too!

That shot is awesome Mack, haven't seen anything like it! The framing worked out perfectly!

I appreciate the help! Yea smallest focal range i have is my 24-105 f4. Then my 28-70 f2.8. Yea only reason i tried a lower ISO I wanted to see less noise comparison of the long exposure NR vs the ISO NR ive seen on regular pics. Does everyone use the NR luminance from lightroom or another application?

This isn't easy. Went out and just did singles. 17mm at 23secs, ISO3200.
Think I've turned of high ISO NR. Should this be on or off for astro?
NCHANT, your photos are impressive.

There is a green spot mid-top, what is that? (the lower right is just a bush in the garden!)

I think you got one of the ends of an IR (Iridium Satellite) . Those are common in the starting of spring time up through summer for the first 2-3 hours after sunset . Reason I say that is cause first off there is no color I can see in the streak , another is the blunt end and opposite a sharp end . Looks like you either caught it on the last half or the shutter closed before it disappeared . Anyway it's a decent catch . Congratulations .

Thanks guys! Yes the framing was very lucky that night!

This was shot later in the night so the alignment of the MW and beach wasn't as cool:

My general rule of thumb is not to use in-camera noise reduction as it zaps your file and you can't take it off. Shoot RAW, and just use Lightrooms noise reduction tools, they are very very good. A lot of people purchase other programs, plugins etc but I see them as unnecessary when you already have PS/LR, just use them.

You are just on another level with all your milky way photos. Inspiring stuff.

Very nice! Are these shots from Rodanthe Pier recent? I didn't think the MW was visible in these parts at this time of year.

The milky way with no moon were taken Saturday morning around 415am. It rises up over the ocean around 330am. So you have about an hour to an hour and a half to shoot until it gets too bright. Hard part is catching no moon or clouds during that short window of time.

On top of all, LOVE your composition.
Very well done. And you deserved yourself a weekend long nap to be ready for the next shoot.

Gone up to the cabin, about 300 km's North of Oslo. Cold, dark and clear.
My son painted the trees with a small LED torch. By the left trees, is that a galaxy?
