Astrophotography For A Beginner
On a recent trip to the south of Switzerland, I was so impressed by the view that I just had to take a picture of the night sky.
Since I had never done astrophotography before and I didn't feel like reading or watching any tutorials I just experimented with different settings on my Sony A7 III.
Afterwards, I adjusted the brightness and other parameters in the official photo app on the iPad a bit. Et voila:
The next evening I noticed that Jupiter was especially bright that night. So I took a few shots with my 85mm lens just for fun. To my surprise I later discovered that you could even see two Jupiter moons when you zoomed in a bit:
Not bad either.
Back at home I found this tutorial and imported one of the RAW files into Lightroom. That's what I came up with:
Not bad, not bad at all.
