Hope you don’t mind star scenes and night shots. If you do, you may not like the direction this blog is heading. I have two main subjects that I like to shoot during the spring/summer months and they are both in the sky. Basically anything to do with the stars and thunderstorms.
Today’s shot is from some outdoor test shots to compare some of the custom functions available on my Canon camera. I wanted to test out High ISO Noise reduction and Long Exposure NR to see if it would improve what it says – the noise. I, unfortunately, couldn’t tell a difference between the shots. Adding the dark frame in camera didn’t seem to change the noise level at all…?
Also wanted to throw out a cool computer program that I came across last night while searching for Milky Way rise and set times. The program is called – “Stellarium”. Really cool program that is a live view of your sky and it even stays real time. You can fast forward to see what is going to be up later as well as turn on satellite tracking to see where they will travel in the sky. Not to mention it is a freeware program. Give it a look, solid program. Stellarium
