This one is for Paul. Taken in Canada. Unfortunatly quite a bit of light pollution.
48 minutes at f5.6
Thanks Neil... It gives me an idea of what I should be aiming for. With this one and yours of 03/02 then it shows two exposures and apertures. It amazes me that the exposures is so short for the first and extended for the second WITH light polution. Both are just the result I'm after. I notice that both are taken with your Canon Digital. Have you had success like this with film?
I have had more success with film I just dont have any scanned on PC. I find that with film there isn't the same colour cast and obviously there is no noise. My best result was using ISO 100 slide film. Here are some quick tips. Try them and let me know how you do.
1. Use ISO 100 film
2. Find somewhere VERY dark and with no lights remember to think of things like car headlights torch light house lights.
3. Try f4 to f8 I found that f11 gives little or no trails as there just isn't enough light getting onto the film.
3. Try exposures of 10 mins to an hour. I like hour long exposures.
4. Try and locate the Pole star too as this gives nice circles.
Dont hesitate to ask any more questions either here or in the forum topic.
use 400 asa film, you will get brighter trails.
I use ISO400 film and 45 mins at f8. The pole star is the key to a stunning one anf try and gey something like a tree in the foreground to give a sense of scale.
