So, it's my first new thread here We had relatively clear skies last night so I grabbed my bag and headed out into the countryside to see what I could see. These are my 3rd and 5th/6th attempts ever at a night sky so be gentle. Please do post your own awesome ones taken on m4/3 to provide inspiration. Both taken on my Oly 50mm adapted lens wide open at 1.8 ISO 100. First is a single 4 minute exposure and the second is two 4 minute exposures merged in photoshop (just ask if you want to know the process). 'Polaris' - Just down and left of centre. I may also have knocked the camera resulting in the L-shaped stars. P1000856 by AndyBeetz, on Flickr 'Altair' - the brightest blue trail 1/4 up in the centre according to google sky map anyway P1000858 by AndyBeetz, on Flickr One thing that surprised me straight off was the different colours of the stars. When I look at them directly or see non-trailed pictures that finer point doesn't come across very well. Thanks for looking and sharing!
