I need to figure out how to do stars. Great job people; gives me something to try for.


If the stars are there, your camera will see them.

2. Star trails. The red glow on the horizon is from a forest fire in the distance.

ok these shots are awesome!! Is it possible to take these kind of shots without a star tracker? Whenever I try long exposures like these at night they do not come out anywhere near this sharp. Please teach me haha!

Love the enthusiasm.....another convert to the dark arts!

You don't need a sky tracker for this. None of my shots above are using a tracker. To get started fast and wide lenses are a plus, but even those aren't absolutely necessary. If your not getting sharp shots, either you're having trouble focusing, or getting movement in your camera. Do you have a solid tripod? How about a remote? Use a wide angle lens to start as it's more forgiving and with your flashlight light up something to manually focus on. Make sure it's far enough away to focus on infinity, but with a WA lens that's only 20 feet +/-. Don't worry about star trails and set your shutter speed to whatever you need for a good exposure. This may take several test shots to figure out. Note, you may need a remote depending on how much light there is. Give it another try and feel free to ask anymore questions.

^ Lovely. This is Mayflower Gulch, right? Wanted to get there at night when I lived in Silverthorne, but just never panned out unfortunately.

My night landscapes typically involve the Milky Way...

The "little" black hill/bump in the middle-ground (where the stream disappears) is Mt. Sunday, where they built the town of Edoras for the Lord of the Rings movies. It is a stunning place in the daytime (external link) as well.

Oh man, the Milky Way is so much nicer in your hemisphere! Especially love that first one with the hill/bump! and yes, that's Mayflower Gulch.

WOW amazing things going on in this topic. Still pretty new to the landscape, let alone chasing stars and night photography. These are may latest attempts.
