I hope this image explains why I’m in love with the night sky! Crystal clear sky on the edge of the Grand Canyon. @natgeocreative @natgeo @grandcanyonnps #grandcanyon #arizona #utah #astrophotography #nightsky

Around 2 am, I headed out to the beach to see how the Sony RX100 V would capture the Milky Way. As you can see, the 1” sensor handled it with aplomb. A single exposure at ISO 3200, f/1.8, 20 sec, and 24 mm was amazing, but when I stacked 5 consecutive exposures with the same parameters, whatever little noise there was simply melted away. Here’s basically what I did to create this shot.
_
1. I put the camera in Manual mode set the following parameters: ISO 3200, f/1.8, 20 sec, 24mm.
2. I set the focus to manual and zoomed in on the brightest star and made sure it was a pinpoint of light on my LCD. Here’s a bit of great news…when the camera says the focus is set to infinity, it really is at “true” infinity. On interchangeable lens cameras, the infinity point is often inaccurate, and trial and error is required to find the “true” infinity mark.
3. More awesome news! The little Sony has a self-timer setting that will take 5 consecutive images with a 2 second delay! This feature was extremely helpful for this shot because I planned to stack 5 images.
4. I took my 5 consecutive shots and one last one where I stood in front of the lens to offer a sense of perspective, make the composition more dynamic, and have a cool selfie.
5. I brought the images in LightRoom. Then, I exported the 6 images as layers to Photoshop.
6. In Photoshop, I combined the first 5 images by converting them to a smart object, auto aligning them, and blending them using the “median” blending mode. If you’re interested in how to do this and many other things related to astrophotography, Ian Normal (@inorman) has excellent tutorials on his website (www.lonelyspeck.com). 7. As a final step, I blended in the bottom of the image where I was standing in the field of view. ============================

So happy with the mounted canvas print of my Constellation of Aquarius whale I received from @pixapp 💙 Love how the painting transferred from paper to canvas so easily 🐋💫

I always get asked about photographing stars
I am by no means an expert astrophotographer but I have started to play with shooting the #milkyway
Shooting the Milky Way is 85% preparation. I use an app called star walk 2 to figure out where and when #sagittarius is going to rise and I come back to the night sky with my camera at that hour. I took this one at 4am in #tulum in front of @alayatulum as the beginning portion of the Milky Way had started to rise. Sagittarius had not yet risen, (the really cool part) it was gonna be in the sky (5:30 am) but at that hour the moon rose and clouds came in so I had to settle for the early part I already shot.

Lens set at 12mm

To shoot stars you want to use the rule of 500. Divide 500 by the focal length of your lens and that is the maximum exposure time you can set before you get star trails. For example with a 20mm lens the longest exposure is 25 secs. Etc.
Then I adjust contrast clarity saturation and tint. I have fun learning to shoot the skies. I hope this helps any of you that asked me questions about it. Oh yeah I also have auto noise reduction on long exposure photos set to "on" on my camera for shooting night skies. •

Hey guys! @cjdarbyshire here taking over Universe Today's Instagram for the day. I'll be posting a few of my favourite images, starting with this aurora shot from Iceland last year!

This was my second trip to Iceland, but my first time seeing the aurora. My friends and I were driving around the whole country, and had a fairly tight schedule. On the second day, after shooting the sunrise, we ran out of fuel! Anyone who's been to Iceland will know that there's often a long way between fuel stations, so we ended up having to stay an extra night at our accommodation while we sorted out the car. As it turned out, we ended up being in the only part of the country that night with clear skies, and the aurora was going off! Without running out of fuel I would never have seen it. Sometimes the best photos are the ones that were unplanned :) Shot on a Sony A7ii and Zeiss 16-35mm
15 sec | f4 | 16mm |ISO1600

I know I said I've never seen a cloud so low before in a previous post. BUT THIS... You can't top this off. No way!! It looks like the reflection of the sky, but I kid you not THEY ARE clouds just above the water - its covering the whole area! ☁😍 The photo does not to justice. Goodnight 😘😘🌜

Záře ze strany jedné, nasvícená socha ze strany druhé. (Tentokrát v barevném provedení!)
Vyfotit tohle mi trochu trvalo, protože věřte nevěřte, patnáctisekundová expozice na Karlově mostě není fotka na první pokus :) #charlesbridge #nightsky #night #light #statue #smoke #longexposer #xt10 #vltava

photo not so clear , but at least the sky was a little clear to see some ★ in the sky ..

Lucky shot #1 . Shooting star over a half a million old meteor impact crater!!! After the jam up, @borkarkunal , Naga and I decided to head to the crater to get a few night sky shots from atop the water tank. Did the tripod+camera set up, and it was super windy. Kunal kept the tripod steady for the long exposure shot, and this came out as the first shot try out. Rare and lucky as can get.

Ok this is my first attempt at Jupiter taken with an iPhone! Jupiter is currently 670.2 million km from earth. ⠀

This is actually my first attempt at any planet with my iPhone so I hope to try many more times and get better...I've taken shots of deep sky objects so far but no planets because I thought the seeing wasn't good enough for so much magnification. ⠀

@mathewspaceman convinced me to try my 3x Barlow and the result turned out way better than I expected! This is a stack of 300 frames taken in video mode with Night Cap Pro. #nightsky #stargazing #universe #planet #space #amazing #astrophotography #iphone #nightcappro #celestron #solarsystem #jupiter⠀
