You will also need a remote control or a shutter release cable in order to minimize shaking the camera when taking the pictures.
Set the camera in your tripod and take at least 5 consecutive images at the stars using the correct exposure time (using the RULE of 600) Do not move the camera to a different spot or change the settings unless you are done with that series of pictures. Tip: Every time I am done with a set of pictures, I place my hand in front of the lens and take another picture.
The final image will be a large TIF file that you will use to bring up the colors in Photoshop.
I also edited the blue, red and green colors in the level in order to make the nebula more visible. Become a Contributor: Check out Write for DPS page for details about how YOU can share your photography tips with the DPS community.
I have always been interested in stars and really saw the opportunity to try and take pictures of them.
PS: in addition to the results of the sky, I tried taking pictures of my surroundings at night as well. Also if you’re in manual mode, how is it possible that there is exposure compensation setting?
I just bought my daughter a Canon EOS 70D with 20.2 megapixels, EF-S 18-55 lens and EF 700-300mm telephoto lens.
Also, an app for IOS called "Starfinder" (free download last time I looked) can help with finding nebulas and the Milky Way so you shoot more than just a bunch of stars without depth. I tried loading 1 image into photoshop and brightening it, but the amount of noise on the image was ridiculous. Thanks for the information, I followed your instructions last night and got awesome results. If you are referring to the examples in the above article, I think you need to realize these are small, web-friendly images, not the original, high resolution versions.
I'm late to the game on this one, but I was camping this weekend and got some great opportunity to take some shots for this technique. Can' t wait to give to ago and as I'm going to the Isle of Mull later in the year where the light pollution is virtually 0 I want to get some practice in! I have been an amateur astrophotographer for many years initially using hypersensitised colour film and exposures through a guided telescope of up to 3 hours. Hey, this maybe a stupid question but when I watched your video I noticed that the image you were using was in grey scale rather than RGB. If you shoot a lot of images, over a long period of time, you are making a motion "Time lapse" sequence, that can be sequenced easily in quicktime pro, for example. To sum up my understanding: To avoid creating star trails you take successive exposures of a shorter duration and stack them. Just keep trying mark, I would bracket a couple of pictures first, and find which ones give you the best result, I am usually shooting about 30 second long exposures.
It's a shame the video didn't fully explain what the photo was of, and what settings were used, or even how many shots were taken.

Step 5: Photo ideasThe above instructable is for stars, for the moon you will need a telescope or a set of binoculars a steady hand and the above. The best thing to do is actually UP the ISO to as high as your camera can do before it starts looking too noisy (or use noise reduction software). Here are two photos I took of the recent eclipse, shutter time was 1.5 seconds, and still a star has turned into a bit of a blur. I am not an astrophotographer in any way, shape or form, nor do I have any expensive equipment. Taking stars pictures in your back yard is possible, however for better results select a place away from city lights. That is to superimpose one image on top of the others (not all the images, but pictures belonging to the same series). I have recently got the opportunity to use my dads old DSLR camera (Canon EOS 10D) as he stopped using it. After checking multiple sites on how to take pictures at night and of the night sky, I decided it was time to try it myself. I know that this should not affect it, but are you happen to be using some kind of noise reduction for long exposures?
ISO 1600 is a bit too low for me, but I still see lots of stars even then, just with less intensity. I wanted to surprise her by having it set up and ready to do a photo like this but I have no idea about cameras. Second time around I got the shot (Really noisy as I didn’t bother stacking with DSS). Recently in Kona (where lights are dimmed because of the observatory on the island) I followed the 600 rule, 18mm, ISO 1200, and stacked myy shots. This is a circa 2006 camera, and at 7 years old, I am going to suggest the noise is due to a sensor of meagre capability (signal to noise ratio at 800 ISO on almost any camera has improved by leaps and bounds since then). I was able to get a series of photos from a clear, beatiful Maine autum night sky, that I'm very pleased with. If the camera you are using is of low quality, yes, you're going to see noise, but that is where the process of shooting a number of shots and stacking them helps. Digital photography is a good place for experimenting but you need the knowledge to do some things.
I came home, loaded up my RAW files (they were a bit noisy due to the 1600 ISO I used) but I pressed on.
I dont have an answer, my GH1 and GH2 process for about the same length of time that the exposure is.
My Images is in RGB not grey scale and when I used the technique you suggested with curves and levels it just comes out extremely red and orange. If you are wanting to just try to limit the amount of noise from low level light, then just a few pictures stacked will work.
My Lumix gh1 and gh2 take about the same length of time to write the image to memory before i can shoot again.
Weird as it loaded fine on a different machine with only 8 gigs of ram and much slower c2d chip. I can't see that there would be that much 'hidden' cloud and nebula on a 28mm shot of the night sky, it looks like it was more like 300mm, but then with the rule of 600, could you get that much info in 2 seconds??? Si te gusta descargar fondos de estrellas utiliza este wallpaper 1600x1200 para monitores panorA?micos. Se procede a cortar las hojas de marihuana de la planta cuando la planta desarrolla las flores, los preciados cogollos. An SLR of course is hard to beat for the quality it offers, but a decently good P&S which offers at least 15 seconds exposure time can just scrape through.

Whether you use a point and shoot or dslr you should be able to adjust your exposure compensation rather easily. This concist of taking a picture but with the shutter completely closed, that is completely dark (hence the name, black frame) and then substract this frame to the previous one or any you would like.
When I do that the stars have moved so far that they come out as streaks, and the moon is blurry.
Are you actually setting the camera up to WAIT say 30 seconds and then shoot (rather than setting your exposure to last that long)?
I wonder if you tried the same thing with a more modern camera with better noise control, if you'd have better results. I used the Deep Sky Stacker software and when it "stacked" them, they were offset by a little bit (due to the shift from taking a series of shots over 3 minutes). This means that often star trails will look so short that you will not notice them (particularly with short focal lenses and no blow up of images). I realise the stars move, I just don't understand how you can stack successive images WITHOUT getting movement.
The stars are all moving, those further from the north star in our hemisphere move further. Everything you wanted to know about taking pictures of stars in one easy to understand article!
But try to capture the scene on your camera, and in all probability, you'll only get the moon, surrounded by a pitch black sky.
Needless to say, a tripod is essential for such long exposures - having the right equipment for taking star pictures makes the task much simpler!
I compared my pictures to those my friend made with his camera and he got much better results than I did.
The shot I have uploaded is only 4 megs (I shoot with a 25 MP camera and the original is huge). Consequently, lets say a 10 minute exposure would give a trail, 10 minutes in lenth, whereas a photo every minute for lets say 10 seconds in length, would give 10 stars with the same distance of the first example.
I once had problem shooting the moon on a stable setup with a 200mm (digital) with 2 seconds, and I wasen't satisfied. You will find an older comment of mines here on November 11th where a page is linked with some hints on the subject.
If the moon is all white, then start tweaking your exposure compensation down until you get the detail you want. It is best to rest the camera on a steady surface (ideally a tripod, but I have used rocks and trees. What DID frustrate me about the demo above, is the image was in colour, but the tab in the curves menu in PhotoShop said "grey".
The Photoshop problem is frustrating as well, as i have about the same setup that you do with the i7 core and memory. And this article aims to teach you exactly that: how to take pictures of the stars with a digital camera. I get memory errors and if i watch my Task Manager and memory usage, it i hardly being taxed, and i have played with many of the memory allocation settings without much help.
Also, if you have a dslr, you might get some light into the camera through the viewfinder, so seal that somehow.

    Bit of photoshop trickery you possibly can cut back.
