Fabulous job! So much better than my first! Did you use a tracker or stack images? This was my first. It is challenging but fun! Mine was a 10 second exposure and I lit the corn with a flashlight

Celin thanks for your nice words, your picture looks amazing too. No I didn’t use anything, I’ve just set up my tripod in a dark place and tried different camera settings after watching a lot of astro photography and post-editing videos. I was on the mountains, no city lights and a super clear sky helped obviously. Yes it is challenging, requires patience and a little bit of luck too but fun indeed.

That’s probably the difference. It wasn’t super dark where we were. It’s so much fun though. You did an amazing job. Hope you post more in the future
