p.1 #1 · Some amateur astrophotography with the D600


I live on Long Island, NY as my profile suggests so it's REALLY hard to find locations that aren't light polluted. You can go to the eastern most point but that's a pain in the ass to get to and a long drive too.

Tonight I took some shots on a beach on the north shore, facing Connecticut. Not ideal but definitely way less light pollution than where I live. It was a bit daunting too since there was only two of us and the beach was absolutely pitch black (and cold! -- about 10 degrees F after wind chill). My car alarm went off for no reason twice and it scared the s*** out of us :x

Anyways, here are two shots from the night. Still getting the hang off all of this stuff. I'd really like to learn exactly how to blend exposes so I can get a nice and sharp foreground as well. Right now I just shoot as is and if there's a person in the foreground, they just try and stand still the entire time, which isn't too ideal...images are quite noisy but this is just a first processing -- will try and redo later





That torch is incredible powerful. We were just doing a general sweep of the area and spun it around in a circle. There was a beach house we thought was empty but after we flashed the light, they turned all of their lights on. It was slightly hilarious and I felt kind of bad afterward but it was only around 8pm, so...

Who hasn't shined a flashlight up into the heavens at night. Great images. If you would like some PP help with them, post them up on the Critique forum. Lots of knowledge there and they are always willing to help.

Really like the second here, the first was good, but when I scrolled down, the second took my eye.

Hey Justin,

These are really cool looking! What a great idea to use the flashlight like that... I am thinking I am going to try something like that too the next time I am out shooting stars.

BTW, how come you didn't post these in the Landscape forum? Or did I miss them?

Great shots. You will find darker skies on the south shore. Maybe when Robert Moses State Park opens up again, give that a try.
