It wasn’t a rookie mistake, it was you making dark frames

I spent last night at our family's (summer) cottage, which is located on a quite remote island at Lake Saimaa, which means nights can get quite dark as there isn't that much light pollution around. Although the evening was quite cloudy, eventually I did start seeing stars in the sky, so that meant only one thing: I was going to set up my camera on a tripod and try to do some astro photography. I struggled a bit as I had various trouble with setting up the camera gear, including the rookie mistake on my first attempt: I was perplexed why 10 seconds, f/1.4 and ISO 6400 resulted pitch black images and after almost giving up, I noticed that I had lens cap on! After removing the lens cap I started to get results like this...

Milkyway

α7R IV + Sony FE 1.4/24 GM @ 24 mm, f/1.4, 13 s, ISO 6400

And although I would have thought there is minimal light pollution, I was quite surprised the horizon looked that orange (and yes, this was several hours after the sunset).

Been a while.... but was thinking of Dyxum the other night doing my thing so decided to bring out my A99ii and throw it up on my larger refractor. A 980mm F7 "lens". ;)

Since I shared a "legal" image above with a Sony above... I will share a couple from the same night with my larger gear and an astro cam. Taken with a 2000mm F10 telescope and a high speed planetary camera. The following pics are stacks of the best 200 of 10,000 frames. (10k full raw frames shot in about a minute - 2mp camera... its "lucky imaging")

Sun setting across Mare Crisium


A view of the southern terminator....


This is what I do these days.... ;)

All the best to everyone!

Good to see this Joe.
I always try to get some moon eclipse shots when they happen
It's fun to see how others do.
As Paul said the 500 reflex works quite well here.
Be yourself; everyone else is already taken

Glad you antipodeans got a good show; you're good with the 500 reflex!
