While I was taking pictures of the moon, I switched to my 6mm fisheye lens for some long exposure shots. I assume the blue planet is Uranus NE At 9 o’clock. Somewhere between 9:10 and 9:15 I assume lens flare. So cool. Now I want to do more shots. You star guys will know exactly where I was looking. I am in central Ontario. South side Lake Simcoe. I would love to think I found something cool beyond Neptune. But that fisheye lens probably flares like crazy. 🙂 Still love this picture though.omg

Shooting For The Stars

During Perseid meteor shower last month I went out armed with bug repellent, tripod, camera . I ended up seeing a few meteors but seemed to never have the camera in the right spot.
I was looking at  Jfrels  page, and was inspired to go back and look at those pictures again. I think I did get one faint meteor. Or a spider spinning a web from tree to tree . 🙂Shooting star

I think I only saw 6 meteors over the course of an hour. Bored I started to play with lenses and settings. I was taking pictures randomly where I witnessed the last meteor, hoping for a repeat . There were a few stars I could visually see, I was blown away at what the camera sensor picked up that I couldn’t see. Most pictures I had my shutter between 20 -30 seconds . I set the last picture to 6 seconds to compensate for the earths movement. I plan on doing a lot more night photography.
