comp2IMG_1995-EditIMG_2430IMG_2465IMG_2557I made 1,000 or so 20 second exposures last night: Rokinon 14mm f/2.8 ISO 6400, Lightroom for dehaze and noise reduction, Starstax for the composite.  Go ahead – order a print – you know you want to!

Lightning in Taos Canyon

Posted in 5DMII, Long exposures, Wide Angle with tags on June 22, 2016 by budbranch

10 second exposure @ f/5.6, ISO 100, 17mm

I mounted the camera on a tripod, set focus to manual, focused with live view. With camera on manual mode, experimented with ISO and aperture to get reasonable exposure using 10 second shutter, then locked-down the shutter so it would shoot unlimited 10-second exposures.  Out of 300 or so frames, this was the keeper!Lightning

Star Trails

Posted in Astrophotography, Composite, interval exposure, Long exposures, sky, Wide Angle on May 14, 2016 by budbranch

These images are composites of multiple frames: 25, 53, 76, and 157, so at 30 seconds per exposure, the images capture 12, 25, 38, and 78 minutes of star movement.  I use free software called StarStaX to blend them all together.star trails star trails star trails star trails
