So the other half and I were camping this past weekend. We set up a good spot for the tripod right near our site and proceeded to practise some starry night shots. The Milky Way was looking very clear, there was no moon.
We saw and captured 2-3 satellites
In the below pic you can see in the top left the line of a satellite that entered the shot- it was approx 20secs open shutter
Anyways here’s the pic without further ado -
It was the Saturday night
Camera settings are
20”
f/ 1.8
ISO 1600
Camera is Canon 7D
Lense is Sigma fixed 50



What do we have in the right lower? We saw nothing with our eyes.

Something seems off with the stars. Almost looks like a clone tool from Photoshop was used.

Possibly a small fiber or hair on the lens that could have caused it?

Here is a photo taken about 10-15 minutes earlier if you see lower right the line of a satellite captured that we had watched cross from the left with our bare eyes before pressing the button
We stayed in pretty much the same area the whole time.

Yes actually because the tripod is great but you still have to press the button on it with our setup there’s a small blur in there- but apart from that this is just a copy I saved on my iPhone after the Boyf put everything on the computer

I'd think with a longer exposure that a hair or fiber could cause such a bright disturbance in the image.

This picture looks more normal overall. In the top picture, it seems like the stars are running in lines for some reason which is not normal at all. I do not know what could cause that to happen.

Yes I have a feeling it’s more just a slight tremble created by the finger pressing we were practising after all this was he first time in general

Why not set the auto timer thing?

Then you don't have to touch it.

Indeed, if that were the case all of the stars would show the same movement.

You saw nothing? A flitting bug which escaped notice, perhaps.

It's been known to happen.


Awesome name for a beach, btw.

I agree. Something “felt” off on my first glance...
(Disclaimer: I’m not insinuating anything)
Looking closely, there are multiple double stars that seem to share the same orientation relation, or something... Near the top middle, there are a pair of quadruple stars in straight rows... and if you look at the whole picture, it’s almost like the stars are aligned in diagonal rows... as if they raked or combed that way...
(So if you look at most of the main stars, you can see that they have a twin that’s a little distance, diagonally from them...)
The second picture isn’t like that... Good pic.


I don’t know what to think about the interesting squiggle.

I should of said first off, great star pic and thanks for posting them.


I think I know what we are looking at here. The brightest spot (bottom right) in the 2d picture is the squiggly line in the first picture. Happened when the camera moved.

Open to suggestions yes, you know we were camping near a sand dune so I imagine there are all sorts of bugs and things hanging around but not to the point we noticed.

Haha thanks
We are super excited to perfect our technique and get more pics like these! We got some really cool ones of the full moon last month too! I’ll share them some timea reply to: LookingAtMars

If you zoom in closely you can see the same movement in the circled part..





I thing the cam moved while taking the shot..

Peace

Overall, I feel like it’s a cool anomaly pic. Who knows what it could be. The only odd thing that happened was the battery went dead immediately after so we replaced that and continued taking some cool shots which admittedly are clearer as you can see from the second pic I posted.Although that one was taken earlier the pics after are also just as clear
We hope to get some more again soon! Maybe once we are really into it and have mastered it - there isn’t a timer unfortunately as someone above queried- we will be able to use a star map app and look at where exactly we are pointing our camera! That will probably help rule out things that aren’t meant to be there
