Astrophotography

Astrophotography at Big Meadows, Shenandoah Nation...
Author Last Post

Loved your shot, Andrew. I was there last Spring and attempted a shot of M101. After freezing in the cold for quite a long time, I realized that I never locked the dec axis. Every shot had trailed stars.


Quite beautiful!

Wow! Andrew this image is stunning! I love the composition. I don't know if I could ask for anything else to make a camping trip perfect than to be able to enjoy a view like this one.

Hi all,

I Recently took a vacation up to Shenandoah National Park. It was during dark sky so I was planning on getting some kind of astro shot. Unfortunately the smoke through a wrench in my plans, but luckly it cleared out in a few days. After waiting for 3 hours for the Milky Way to line up with the tree I took this shot. This is my first end-to-end attempt at landscape astrophotography and I am very pleased. My camera is pretty old and my lens isn't the best, so the foreground is pretty noisy and the edges have some aberration. I'm also not convinced if I nailed the focus. Still, very happy with how it turned out. Thought you all might like to see!
