Dark Skies

This shot was taken a couple of years ago at Cherry Spring, State Park in PA. This place is one of the darkest skies I have been at. Does any want to share some of their favorite places that also have a truly dark sky?

Welcome

Hey all, I wanted to create this group because I haven't seen a lot of astrophotographers on the site and I wanted to share my passion and knowledge as well as hear back from everyone about my images. Anyways I wanted some feedback on this image so what do you think?

Over the night

Last star trails from my trip last year to Mount Bromo - Indonesia
I hope to see you guys this year where I am organizing a photography workshop to this incredible place at July.

Along the Kilimanjaro Trail

Good afternoon, everyone! I just wanted to share this image I took at the second camp along the Machame route, while hiking to the summit of Kilimanjaro. While I did get many other milky way images, this one is probably my favorite. After exiting the bathroom, I looked to the left and saw these trees and the milky way perfectly framed between...

Prime Lens or Variable

Hello all. I'm still newish at astrophotography. Got hooked on it back in the summer of 2015. I currently use a Rokinon 10mm, f/2.8 lens for my night stuff. I also have a Sigma 18-300mm f/3.5 lens which I love for just about everything else I do. No removing the lens, less dirt... as I'm a dirt magnet for some reason.

So, the 18-300 isn'...

Needing advice on lenses

This shot was taken in the ghost town of Nelson, NV. Full disclosure, the sky is from Acadia NP. I recently dropped and destroyed my Canon 16 - 35mm 2.8 lens. Very pricey. Ouch! I was considering replacing it with a Sigma 20mm 1.4 prime lens, which was recommended by an astrophotographer. The reviews of the lens indicate there is a bit of a...

Beginner question

Hello everyone!

I started getting into photography and Astrophotography is what really got me more serious.

I have been owning a Canon T3i for a couple of years, but never really tested it out until recently.

To do Astrophotography, I got myself a Rokinon 16MM f2 and I also own a Sigma 18-200mm F3.5-6.3 DC OS.

Would love your critique!

Took this from my back yard the other night. Worked on it in post to bring out detail would like some thoughts on the final product. Does the processing feel natural? Too much? Not enough?

Eclipse 2017 - Las Vegas

Las Vegas Eclipse 2017. I always say things happen for a reason, at first I thought the clouds were going to make shooting the eclipse horrible, but at the end I loved how these photos turned out. The sky really helped to create a mood that without it the photo wouldn't have had that depth. Even though Nevada's eclipse wasn't a full totality, I...

Milky Way in Colorado

Outside Colorado Springs, it can be difficult to get a good shot of the Milky Way due to light pollution. Here I was looking south and the city lights were to the west, so there wasn't much light pollution. I used my flashlight to light the rocks. This was taken with a Sigma 20mm f/1.4 Art.

Milky Way Photography over an abandoned Train Trestle

Hey fellow astro lovers!

First disclaimer, I am not in love with the images I personally got from this trip to the Trestle. Brendon might like his but I am just meh over mine but it was a great practice and I am very glad we filmed the whole thing so I can learn from my mistakes and share them with others.

To be fair, in the...

Selfie!

Any CC on this image?
This was taken with a Nikon D3x + 14-24 F2.8 on a very very cold night.
The photo is taken in front of Burg Eltz, Germany.

Matterhorn

Hey Everybody

This picture was taken in Zermatt Switzerland.. It was worth it, waiting for the Milky way until 2 O clock...
