I’ve recently recorded some photos of the stars (“astrophotography”) so I thought I’d post a few here with the various settings used. I use a Sony A6600 and all of the photos below are using a 24mm lens and were captured between 11pm and 6am. Unfortunately, as you’ll see in a few photos, the moon was bright which plays a big part on the overall brightness of the photos. Along with that, when the moon is right overhead, you might as well not even try! It will be too bright to capture the vast number of stars in the sky but when the moon is low or below the horizon, you’ll be amazed at the amount of stars showing up in your pictures.
I love night sky photos, so get out there and try it! Hopefully these pics along with the specific settings help you figure out how to get a great shot wherever you are.
Thanks for dropping in…
