The top of Cadillac Mountain, was sitting there waiting for it to get dark and I saw a shooting star, then another, and another, before I realized I was seeing more than shooting stars. I believe that's also Mars right above the tree silhouette as well.

Likewise, I've tried with hyperfocal distance but couldn't get it right. The other option is to focus stack, haven't tried that yet.

Hi 4matic, you might want to look into double distance focusing. See video here (external link).

Milky Way and I'm guessing the early stages of the Perseids from the weekend in Acadia!

Ive just watched this and cant imagine its as easy as that. Double the distance, absolutely fantastic. Can’t wait to try it out.
Many thanks Pippan.

I also watched it and was surprised at how young this chap looks! He must be in his twenties which is surprising he knows what he is talking about....but it appears he does know what he is talking about!

Yeah, except no, he's very inaccurate. He says "The mountain in the background will be as sharp as it can be" at about 1:40. There is a single perfectly sharp focus point, and the rest is considered to be acceptably sharp, the circle of confusion. but not perfectly sharp. Gerald Undone went into that at some length if anyone wants to see it.

Thank you for the lesson in DOF 101. Yes the young fella in the video I posted the link to could have been more accurate with his language (just as you could have been—true focus does not occur at a “point” but a plane), however I think it’s fairly clear that what he means is that the background is as sharp as it can be while keeping the foreground just as sharp. If you focus at infinity, of course distant mountains will be sharper but the foreground elements that you also wanted sharp will be much less sharp.

If you use any traditional DOF calculator and set it so that the far distance is just on infinity (i.e. the close distance is as close as can be with the far distance at infinity), at any focal length, aperture or circle of confusion, you’ll find that the Hyperfocal distance is twice the distance of the nearest ‘acceptably sharp’ distance. To get the sharpest image, it's also important to use the optimum aperture for the area you want to be sharp.

I posted the link to that video to illustrate the concept without too many technicalities. If you want technical justification, have a read of ‘Best Practice in Working with Depth of Field’ (external link)' and 'Image Sharpness vs Aperture (external link)' by George Douvos.

Wow. That needs to printed up big, like hugely big. In fact, that could make a great mural in a hallway in a commercial building somewhere.
