Today I want to talk a little more about astrophotography. I showed you some of my efforts at doing it from the past. I love the images, but I also find them hard to do. Hard in that you have to stay up so late. Plus in winter it is really cold.
It is also something I don’t really feel safe doing on my own. So the problem then becomes finding people to go out with. Though, I’m starting to think that people don’t like me as people who I have gone out with before suddenly get busy and don’t want to do it anymore. It has given me a bit of a complex.
So I mentioned on Friday that I am planning a trip away and I want to do a lot of time-lapse on that trip. One thing I really want to try is some time-lapse of the milky way. I don’t want to talk about the trip yet, but the new moon is going to be happening at the perfect place for the trip and I can’t wait to try and get it.
Now I need to find some time to get out and experiment to see if I can do it. Though I suspect I might have to drag my husband out with me.
I have found some videos on YouTube for you to see what I hope to get. Though I don’t intend to do videos like this, but would like to do one or two in amongst time-lapses of the place.
As I said once before, it would be great if you can click on the YouTube words on the videos and watch them directly on YouTube, help the creators get views. I know it helps their channels.
This last one is a time-lapse, but not of the milky way, but the earth. It is kind of cool to see a time-lapse from the International Space Station.
