A storm is coming… first test shots with the Canon EF-S 24mm f/2.8.
So many lightnings 🙂 Sometimes I had to duck my head… it was so close….
After a next hot summer day very heavy storms were predicted for this night. And yes, it was huge! So many lightning 🙂
Ursa Major (Great Bear) Previous shot of Ursa Major with exposure time 18 x 6s at ISO800
We had some stormy weather tonight. My chance to get some first shots of lightning.
Again I shot series of images of the sky to stack them later. The second image was exposed too long. 13 seconds was too much for this low angle. The first shooting angle was about 50° (declination), the second somewhere about 5°. Direction: East / South East
Last night I shot with ISO800 instead of ISO1600 (like in the past days). Also I shot a whole series of 5-10 photos to stack them later. The result is realy nice 🙂 To stack the photos I use the freeware Deep Sky Stacker. Direction: North East
Yesterday I shot with a 18mm lens to find out the exposure time maximum. Direction: East
This evening I tested different exposure times with 55mm focal length. For my chosen viewing field of about 50° declination 8 neither 10 seconds is too long. I see trails. Very short, but they are there 🙁 Direction: West
