Yesterday I went to Sorrento with a friend to take some photos, we started in the afternoon, had dinner and then headed back out in the dark. I wanted to try getting some photos of the stars. and my friend wanted to try it for the first time. I set my camera to take a series of photos. I was taking 30 second exposures continuously for just over an hour. While my camera was going I helped my friend take her photos and showed her how to do the photos.
It didn’t work too well. My camera moved somehow and it put the stars off. If I do this again, I will need to do it for longer and will have to make sure my camera doesn’t move.
I am not totally disappointed with what I got, it is a good start, and I would like to try doing this again. I do like that I was pointing in the right direction. Good to know that I did see the southern cross and that I followed it correctly.
I would like to do a lot more of this and I know that my friend will be more than happy to keep me company while my camera just goes off. When I go to Woomelang I am definitely going to do more of this. Though if I do them up there, I might do them for a couple of hours, and see how they turn out.
I do have to say that my laptop doesn’t cope well dealing with all the images together and with the stacking, it takes forever to do. It slows my computer down so much, I really will have to get a new computer if I want to do this sort of thing for real.
