Neat, real time video of the stars. I'm sure NASA will be eager to see how it performs in space, like on an EVA from the ISS. Of course it should easily be able to detect the solar system planets too.

When I first got into photography, I used a Sony DSLR A200. They're amazing cameras...Even though I've since graduated to a Nikon D750, I still miss my old buddy. I passed it along to my 13 year old but, there are days when I considered snagging it back


I'll have to check out the astrophotography thread. Even though it's not in my wheelhouse, I still admire it from afar.

Gorgeous. I've never had the infinite patience required for time lapse photography. I assume you shoot in raw, do you use Photoshop for processing or are there specialty programs ? Do you ever digitally stitch multiple shots together (sort of like HDR) or do you use long exposures with manual settings?

Sorry for my nosiness, I'm just in awe of these types of photos.

I do, most of my post is in light room, but also use PS from time to time.

I do at times take one fram for the sky with a high exposure and one for the landscape with a lower exposure. Then blend them in PS.

No worries


Example of a blended sky to landscape but this one it reversed I lowered the sky exposure and raised the landscape one.

Cool! Thanks for the reply. This is something I've long thought about trying but never actually got around to doing. You seem to have it down to a science though, and I admire that. Your shots are beautiful, btw.
