1. Photographing the night sky: Introduction
You’re on holiday, maybe in some of those exotic places, maybe simply far from a city; one night you look at the sky and it looks gorgeous. You wonder “how can I bring home a memory of all this?”.
I’m going to teach you how to get beautiful pictures with a simple gear, you just need a decent camera, a tripod and you have to follow the guidelines I will show in the next articles and videos.
These are examples of what you can achieve
The procedure I’m going to explain is a simplified version of the one used to shoot awesome photos like those you can find here http://www.astrobin.com (btw, these are mine http://www.astrobin.com/users/pterodattilo/), as such, it has some limitations but it is perfectly suitable for the first approach to the night sky photography.
