    Nightscapes

    The January 2022 magazine had a article on nightscapes, so I thought I would try a few night shots. I didn't go far from home, too cold, so the landscapes aren't very interesting but it was a first try. These were taken on 5 January 2022 using a 6D with a 35mm F2 IS lens or a 70-200mm F4, at between 4 and 10 seconds with ISO 3200. Each one was taken three times then stacked using Sequator, based on the magazine recommendation. I was told to change the white balance to tungsten to get remove the brown tinge in the sky.

    Now planning to go somewhere with a better landscape. Also looking to try a tracker so I can use the 400mm or may get a fast wide angle lens.

    Thanks for looking

    They look like a good start to Astro to me Chris. I've ordered a Move Shoot Move tracker, to use for Milky Way images. It seems like it is a lightweight tracker designed for travelling/hiking. If you're interested have a look on YouTube for Alyn Wallace he has a couple of videos where he has used one alongside a more robust tracker shooting side by side at Stonehenge.
