Ok these was taken with the 16-50mm kit lens at 50mm for the moon and 16mm for the stars. The Moon was shot hand held and the stars were taken on a tripod. On the stars I set the camera to the Velvia mode and let it do its thing what I got was 1970's glow in the dark felt posters(can't remember what we called them).The color of the stars was crazy funny and yes on the lower left their is a lot of light pollution from a yellow street light. The moon is a 200% crop at least you can tell its the moon and I used the BW mode for the moon.




Just some fun outside at 2am with Winter she likes to sit outside with me when it is cool and it was only 55 degrees. No great works of art not even good to be honest but it was nice outside.

Nice, Jim.


I was reading that, to reduce motion blur in the stars, try 25 secs or less?


Still, must have been cool, doing that while your favourite pooch is watching your back.  Good times!  :)
