I keep telling myself light pollution is my friend.
Anyway, first MW attempt with the Batis 18 while camping on the Blue Ridge Parkway

PrecisionPhoto thank you! Seriously thanks!
I've been trying and trying seemingly forever to learn how to focus on stars and though
I've improved I'm not 100 percent there but your kind words are encouraging.

I admit it was easier with Canon than with EVF of Sony.

Here's my first try at MW with the FE 12-24mm.
Same location.
Using the a9.
Wasn't that long ago I'd never even try with an F4 lens, much
less a super-wide zoom.
Light pollution sucked a lot out of the core

My first ever attempt at a Milky Way was a complete failure (below). I really need to improve since I find myself in a number of highly desirable and dark sky areas and it would be great to add this to my skill-set.

A night shot I took from Machherma (at an altitude of 4,500m or 14,763ft) overlooking the Bhote Koshi valley and that little village you can see at the bottom of the mountains is Thare, towered over by the mountains of Cholatse (6,335m or 20,784ft) and Tabuche (6,495m or 21,308ft). Unfortunately a powerful bright full moon prevented the Milky Way (barely visible) from showing up in this shot.

This shot was taken with a Sony A7rii and a Zeiss Loxia 21/2.8, 100 ISO with a 20 secs exposure. It looks like maybe 15s would have been better though considering the star trails. I should have upped the ISO but thought I had got away with it in the interest of keeping noise levels to a minimum (virtually zero in fact).

Strange question but maybe there's some science to it : does altitude have any effect on exposure times ? Earth rotation speed ?

^ failure Heck no not a failure. That wold look beautiful printed on metal Frogfish and hung on my wall! Another reason not a failure is you were out there trying.

Am I reading correctly that you used ISO 100 ??
I've got any MW with ISO that low.

Also, is the MW in that frame? Sometimes even in dak dark sky it's not ready apparent.
Do you have a phone app, they are useful to help find it.

Nope, great pic. Just not of the Milky Way, but reminds me that nighttime images aren't always about the core

Thank you !

Yes 100 ISO. I used the AR in PhotoPills to find the MW core and came out 30 mins before it was due just above the highest mountain in that shot. If I raise the exposure by 3 stops (which blows out the mountains and introduces a huge amount of noise) the core can be seen. I was frightened to raise the ISO due to the snow on the mountains. I should have taken a shot purely of the mountains/village and blended perhaps.

Advice please.

What do I have to do differently?

I know I have to pick a night with less (MUCH less) moonlight but anything else for stars?

Not a great one, but I did get a little lucky.
We were doing star trails in Arches, looking towards the north ("Park Avenue"), when I looked around and saw the Milky Way.
As I was shooting it, a car went by on the park road and lit up the mountain for me!
Unfortunately, Moab does put out a bit of light pollution, so the Milky Way was not real defined.

Catsinky, wonderful to see the 10-18 out in use! One of my favorite wides of all time.
Powerful image with the dark hulk of the bridge loaming overhead.

Curious, did you go into crop mode on the a9, or let it doe it automatically?
Since it says 11mm I figure it was crop mode regardless.

Too much light (of the moon August 1) and too little Photoshop.
1000 iso is very much too.
Your picture has more contents than it shows, as I have seen.

Thanks.

I don't like to play with Photoshop too much so just trying to get what I can out of the camera. (it will never be as good as some of the stuff in this thread).

I knew there was way too much moon (it was pretty much in the worst place almost right above).

Thanks again.
