If you have any interest in photography, or get on Pinterest, then you’ve probably seen the pictures of the Milky Way Galaxy, or the super star-speckled night sky, or even star trails.
Here’s an example of a Milky Way Galaxy picture.
I’ve been very envious of picture like these for quite some time.
I’ve tried and failed, tried and failed, and etc.
I tried to take some again tonight.
I can’t seem to get the setting right or something.
Maybe it’s where I live in a light polluted town.
Or my aperture wasn’t set right.
Or I’m using the wrong lens.
You get the point.
Here’s the pictures that I got tonight.
You’ll notice that in the second and third picture I got star trails, which I accidentally got by leaving the lens open too long.
Star trails are formed due to the Earth’s rotation and leaving the lens open any longer than 25 seconds gave me trails.
It’s crazy to think that the Earth is moving that quick ad we don’t even realize it!
Have any of you ever done any night sky photography?
If so, how did it turn out?
I would greatly appreciate any tips or tricks!
