    Fabric of the cosmos.

    Every few months I get a wild hair to fiddle with astrophotogeekery. There are heaps of tutorials online to get you in the vague arena of the shot you're after, but in the end you have to get out and make a lot of mistakes while shorting yourself on sleep in order to get anything unique.



    The beauty of this niche of photogeeking is that you can never know exactly what you'll end up with--too many variables, too few of them controllable.



    The bummer of this niche is that I'm already chronically sleep deprived, and another hobby to get OCD about after dark isn't going to help.



    Last weekend I shot some night exposures from deep within the Gunnison Gorge. The image below was spawned by the simple idea that a non-conventional interval shot might yield something noteworthy.











    I set the lens to 16mm and manual focus at infinity, then set the 7d body to f2.8, ISO 3200, RAW capture, auto white balance, shutter open for 29 seconds, and a 5 minute 5 second interval.



    I used StarStax to stitch the 30 resulting images, then did a very basic levels adjustment in iPhoto to arrive at what you see above.

    I've not yet gotten to the point with astrophotogeeking where I have expectations of what will result from any given shot or sequence, thus the fabric-esque pattern that resulted here was an unexpected delight.

    Here is a shot I took a little over a week ago. I was unable to time the flash correctly to freeze the rider but I still think its a cool shot.

    A couple morning shots of North Ogden, Utah on the way to work this morning. The wind was really howling which made getting a sharper image pretty challenging.

    Interesting lighting, and I would guess little or no editing was done. Is that a city or a forest fire?

    Wow, some great pics here! I was never much interested in photography but this thread really caught my eye (pun intended)

    For someone with no experience looking to begin taking decent night shots, could someone point me in the direction of an inexpensive setup to start out with? Preferably something light and small but if only a dslr will suffice that I guess I'll have to go that route.

    Thanks in advance

    I'm no expert by any means but you need a camera with control over your shutter and aperture settings as well as ISO settings.

    Longer shutter time = more light
    Smaller aperture number = larger lens opening = more light
    Higher ISO = more sensitivity to light, also means more grainy appearance to the photo.

    Any camera with some manual settings which allow you to change at least a couple of the items above will take a night pictures, the more expensive the camera (generally) the better the results will be. One very helpful feature is manual focus which is another reason why DSLRs are the usual go-to for these pictures. My Sony NEX5n takes nice night pictures but it is very difficult to get it to focus on what I want without sitting there and downloading the pictures onto my computer where I can blow them up and see how well the focus preview is working.

    DSLR is probably the way to go but I've had tremendous luck with Sony's RX100 m3. Used it to film a mountain bike video and it does absolutely incredible quality video, has a super sharp lens, and makes star shots and timelapses easy. And the best part is it fits in a pocket. Great camera to take along on rides.

    Bridge cameras (canon powershot sx50, for example) would be a lighter, smaller and less expensive place to start. That's where I started. If your interest/skills progress, however, like mine did, you'll quickly outgrow the capabilities of the bridge camera and buy the dslr. Side by side, a dslr is leaps and bounds better in terms of picture quality, which I think becomes even more critical when taking night shots.

    So if you can swing it, start at the dslr. The good news is, the low end dslrs can generally hang with everything but the models up in the $2500+ range. The bad news, if you get sucked into the hobby, you'll have lenses that are more expensive than the camera itself.

    With not too many exceptions even some of the cheapest cameras out nowadays hang perfectly fine with the more expensive bodies. You might get a higher frame rate or ISO but they will both take pretty much the same picture at pretty much the same quality.

    Agree with you on the Sony RX100. I sold my mirrorless J3 and have been happier with the Sony. (smaller, better functionality for trail riding, equal or better pic quality.) I leave my SLR at home a lot more, even when I have plenty of room.

    The night photography mode on these cameras has made this stuff pretty simple.

    I am not sure if this is a good photo, or if I like it because I had to walk for 3 days in the 100* heat to get it. If anybody knows how to go about shooting a shot like this speak up. I had trouble attempting to find a good way to shoot this.

    I forgot to post anything but back during the solar storm I managed to get out and take shots of the aurora as visible in northern Utah. I took a bunch of pictures during the height of the storm but it wasn't until later that I realized that everything was out of focus:

    Once I realized my mistake I ran back out to take sore more shots but the storm had faded by that point and while interesting, the colors had faded.

    Had a night out in the desert a couple months ago, once again messed up the camera settings but every mistake is a learning opportunity I suppose!

    Tried light painting some pictographs:


    Took some time but a distant aurora showed up too:
