I took this around 6am this morning…I like it a lot actually. A single exposure, with Sirius the dog star in the bottom left, Orion in the middle, Jupiter above and to the right of Orion, and in the far right corner, the Pleiades…
I’ve never captured so many objects in one photo before! For the record this was a single 8 second exposure with my Canon 1000D, using the 18-55mm stock lens set at 18mm, f4.5 with a tungsten white balance.
I have noticed online that for some reason I selected tungsten as the white balance which is not good for stars/planets, etc. as it casts a blue “tint” over everything. So the next time I go out, I’ll switch to sunlight white balance and we’ll see what happens.
For now, I’m pretty happy with what data I collected on such a brief foray outside this morning!
