Practicing my skills at night exposures. I have a intervalometer on order so I shot this image at ISO 1600 50mm f1.4, 15 sec exp. I'm working my way up to a few hours several hundred images stacked to get that star trail the way I want it. I found out that 15 seconds is about as long as you can go and get somewhat still stars. I used auto white balance, What would be better? It looks pretty warm to me. I'm pretty impressed with the sensors high ISO rating. Trees were at 45 feet and hyper focal distance stands at 289.6 so the trees are a bit blurred. It was pitch black out there. My eyes only saw a few hundred stars. C and C welcome, Don
