Tried my (shaky) hand at a burst. Used a 24-70mm zoom. I like the effect, but I don’t like that it makes it very hard to stack. The zoom doesn’t let as much light in as my other lenses so I have to increase the ISO and deal with more noise than I’d like. But, the point of doing something a little different is to challenge yourself and learn. - - - - - -

I drove ten hours yesterday from North Carolina. It was just past midnight when I pulled into my driveway. The stars were amazing. They were the clearest and brightest I’ve seen them this year. As tired as I was, I grabbed my camera and tripod and headed up to my field to snap off a few pictures. You can never count on the weather in Pennsylvania to give you a good night so when it’s nice, you better take advantage. Even though I live in a small town we still get a fair amount of light pollution. I didn’t have the motivation to drive away from it after so much driving, but I am happy with the results. I took this on a tripod with a 35mm lens. No tracker involved. Did some light stacking, only about six photos. The more I take the more I learn. I can start to recognize constellations and nebulae. I don’t know how well it will show up on here, but you can see Saturn, the Lagoon, Trifid, Omega, and Eagle Nebulae. If you look off to the right you can see Antares in the group of stars that look like a pentagon. - - - - - -

Not a bad view. Took this on my iPhone. Used Lightroom so it was a RAW photo and then processed it in the app. I’m impressed with the program, has gradients and radial filters. Powerful stuff for a phone app. - - - - - -

Didn’t get a picture of fireworks, but I was able to get this light show. Had a powerful storm cell south of me that kept lighting up the sky. This is a 15 second exposure. I was in a hurry and didn’t grab my tripod. I propped the camera on my car and set my shutter on a two second delay. I liked the effect of the car driving by. - - - - - -

Had a double tonight. They are always amazing to see. It’s funny, it’s the exact day of the year when I saw one last year in the same place. We had a big storm and the sky turned to a deep orange. I ran up to the same place I saw it last year and sure enough it was there. It was pouring rain, but the final product is worth it. I said this last time, but it still fascinates me. If you look closely the rainbows are inverted since the light has one extra reflection. It’s also why the second rainbow isn’t as bright. - - - - - -

Maid of the Mist. I highly recommend if you visit Niagara Falls to invest in a GoPro or some type of waterproof housing. If you go anywhere besides the street view you’re going to have water everywhere. I was not smart enough to do this...shocker. I showed up with my fairly new Sony A6500. My sweet setup: I took one of those little plastic bags they put in the ice containers and put that around my camera, then screwed the lens filter on over it and cut away plastic over the lens. Looked awful, but it worked surprisingly well. Only problem was constantly wiping water off of the filter. Not stupid if it works! - - - - - -
