In the following photos notice the details in the shape of the Milky Way and the star clusters, expectantly as the exposure gets longer.
Here’s some photos with my Canon XS, but this time on a iOptron camera mount that follows the stars. It’s a fancy clock that matches the rotation of the Earth and keeps the stars on the same place on the camera.
Here’s a photo of Sagittarius and Scorpius with a wider lens that came with the camera. It gets less light than my regular one I use for star photos.
A narrower view of the same area, but also more light taken in.
Note the starclusters!
Now, a longer exposure…..
More light! Note the stars don’t show up as trails, even though after 15 seconds (see previous nights), the stars trail when you look at a full size photo.
One more…. let’s double the exposure time again….
