5 Degree Orion
The Orion Constellation
I am still trying to learn a little about night photography. I do think I am slowly improving. On the clear nights in the part of Alaska I live it is still bitterly cold. last night was 5 degrees Fahrenheit, (-15C). Better than the minus teens we were suffering but still to cold to stand outside for long and take several setting shots, and aiming at night is not an easy thing to do when it is cold, Watery eyes make for a hard time to look through the view finder.
The settings for the image above were: f/5.6 - 10 seconds - ISO 2500. The lens was my Nikon DX VR Nikkor AFP 10-20mm landscape lens. Camera was Nikon D7500.
I tried to get a Cassiopeia image also, but the cold got to me and aiming was a problem. i did try a few different setting on her, but well with the miss aiming no real good shot from that part of the sky.
