  1. Still way more starts than I see most nights, even if a bit streaky 🙂

  2. Very beautiful and I really like that you can see so many stars! I gonna head out tonight as well and hope to take some nice pictures, too 🙂

  3. I’ve tried this twice, Tim, but without your success. Once for a rare aurora display, and the second in the Australian Outback. I found it difficult to know what zoom setting to use.

    • A wide angle is best if you want a lot of sky. You focus on an object that would be at infinity. With a wide angle that is relatively close. You can do this before night and go to manual focus. Tape down your focal ring. Or you can use a very bright flash light and shine it on an object and manually focus using the back of the camera. There is a lot of night photography information on You Tube. You should retry it’s a lot of fun.
