Silky Milky II by Bl4ck-and-wh1te Silky Milky II by Bl4ck-and-wh1te
Milky Way

First time ever doing a static shot of the Milky Way. Made a recent trip out to Moab, UT with a few friends. Uh, excited? Yes. Love this shot.

Gorgeous! Where I last lived in Missouri, a hillbilly of a town called Walnut Shade, population 5, I could see the backbone of the galaxy on clear nights because there were no town lights around. It was just unbelievable! Thank you for sharing this.

what lens, f stop, shutter speed and iso did you use on this? I'm wanting to go out and do shots like this and am asking around for the best settings

Canon 24-70L f/2.8 on a canon 5d, 30 second exposure at iso 1000.

Depending on how you want to shoot night shots, different lenses will work better for you. What part of the country are you in?

Depending on what you want to get, one with star trails or static shots as this, theres several things you want to account for. Depending on how much light pollution you have, how wide of angle you want, how many stars you want to show up, all that comes into effect when you're shooting stars.

Shoot some, and link me some examples and I can give you what advice I have.

Well, I love getting star trails but with the milky way, it doesn't look so hot. So with this I decided to figure out the exposure to get the milky way to be in one place and be still. Had to crank ISO up and shoot as wide as possible. The rule of 600 is very handy for this.

24-70 f/2.8 on a canon 5d, 30 second exposure at iso 1000

Does this help?
