So, as the world came far from the film photography. Now is the time of digital photography for which all you need is a good camera whether it is of good mobile phone or camera itself and some amazing view.
Basic – it includes fixing your camera in a tripod stand to make it steady. For capturing stars you’ll need long exposure. Keep that in mind that focal length of the camera does matter to measure area of the picture. Try keeping timer, cable release or wireless remote to avoid any kind of vibration or jiggle of touch during capture.
Exposure length – long exposure time make the images look like a streak instead of points and astronomers are using “clock drives” to compensate for Earth’s motion that’s new big step in astrophotography.
How fast –
- ISO above 400 to record greatest number of stars.
- ISO 1600 you’ll get brighter but paler stars.
- For simple cameras it runs from 100 to 400 and for expensive 1600 or even 3200.
Using a telescope – it includes pointing your camera at the eyepiece and just click the shutter.
