After spending a couple days planning and praying the weather would be good, I headed out at 4:30pm yesterday for some photography at one of my favorite locations and also one that is a great 'dark-sky' location: Maroon Bells

Got to Maroon Bells Day Use area at 8:45pm and spend 5-1/2 hours shooting for Perseid Meteors and Milky Way. Below are two of my favorites:

Perseid, Milky Way and Maroon Bells:

Hate to be the bearer of bad news, but that first one isn't a meteor.

Here's my first shot of the 2016 Perseid shower, actually ~125 shots went into making this one, shot with a Nikon D600 + Rokinon 24mm f1.4 lens on a Star Adventurer tracking mount as well as a Nikon D7000 and Tokina 11-16mm f2.8 lens on an iOptron Skytracker mount. Altogether it took about 8 hours to edit the photo. Hopefully I'll have some more tomorrow, after I catch up sleep.

how do you guys get the stars to stay as dots rather than move?

No problem, it's a lot to take in, but once you read through it a couple times and it starts making sense you'll see that it's pretty simple.


So I decided to try something a little different, I've wanted to do some tilt shift shots for a while, but don't have the money for a tilt shift lens (they are damn expensive). Plus tilt shift lenses aren't great from a technical perspective for night photography like this, but I've read of some techniques for doing the effect with post processing and thought I'd give it a shot with my most recent nightscape. I figured since the shot looks down on a meadow full of trees and campers it might be the right angle to make it look ok, so here it is:

Altogether it took about 8 hours to edit the photo. Hopefully I'll have some more tomorrow, after I catch up sleep.

Nice! Could be my monitor at work, but there appears to be a green hue throughout the image?

Just wondering, do you use a grip or some other extended battery life?
