I made this photo last night, after midnight. It’s a 30seconds exposure, iso 6400, F/7,1 and not as sharp as I would have wanted. I had to switch my lens to manual focus, turned it to what I thouht was infinite and went from there. Now I’m not sure if at 30seconds there is a movement in the night sky so that I could explain the lack of focus or it’s just me that I haven’t focused in a correct way. This is something I will still have to investigate, but if some of you know this please let me know 🙂 I’m always open to critiques and advices. I even wonder if it’s better to find a still object, focus on that one and then create a long exposure with the night sky behind it. I also plan to try long exposure with a 50mm lens and a lower f.
Since I’m so into night sky photography lately I’ll have to buy a remote as well for next year. Sometimes 30seconds is just not enough.
Feel free to drop here any thoughts you might have regarding night shots.
