Indeed a nice Andromeda capture.

There is nothing more interesting that painting the background with light when you have good sky and location.
You have it all. Only reduce the intensity/duration/pas​ses of light painting and balance that with sky (A tad darker foreground, that you would like to see on cameras LCD. Also different color temperature LEDs or a gel filter / color filter or any modification in that regards, could be really rewarding.

Must admit, you are lucky that your son listens to you and helps you with creation of memorable images. How I wish mine would play less on console...

Have fun and post more.

Thanks for the encouragement guys!
We just grabbed at torch on the way out the door and it was the first time I've tried paining. I just told my son to "paint the trees" Did a good job at 9 years old! Will take a regular torch next time as I agree the the LED is a bit harsh.
Snowstorm tonight and overcast the rest of the week, glad we made the effort to go out last night. Need some gloves of some sort that work, it was -10c so my hands were freezing as I had to take off my mits to set up.

Great fun though. Tracker soon.......

Nchant, amazing photos.

no66: You are welcome and even if LED is intense, you can cover it with a tissue paper or ask you kind assistant to have a short but fast pass, only once on the trees. But then yes, a less intense light might be easier to handle. I have done that even with a regular cellphone with good result as intensity is just enough for slow and long painting then it does give a good uniformity (Not to forget selection of color is you have had it planned right).


Mickey: How I wish to see those Magellanic's clouds one day; correction one night in person.
Its strange that they are so bright and possibly known to native people for navigation or at least to enjoy every night for many centuries but it is only Persian astronomer Al Sufi who documents them for the very first time in mid 900 AD, one thousand years back, when even he could not see them form his native Persia land (Had to travel to what is know as Yamane today, to see them, then documents them in written script).
Well done as always.

what was the focal length on the image or what lens. this has me wanting to try panoramic star pictures but i'm wondering if the 24mm of my 24-105mm would have to much distortion to do so or if the lens correction in lightroom would help at all

That was taken with a Sigma 35mm prime at f1.4. I run all my images through lightroom before stitching with Microsoft ICE. I'll "enable profile corrections" and apply light editing to the prestitched images. Then the bulk of the editing and any manual lens corrections comes from the resulting stitched tiff file.
