So, I now live in Pennsylvania.  Yea, I miss Colorado.  However, where I live there isn’t the light pollution from city lights.  It’s not pitch black (I wish), but it’s easy to see the stars…so, I figure, why not attempt to take some pictures of the stars and the milky way.  I’ve NEVER attempted it before.  So, tonight I went out on the back porch, set up my tripod and my camera and gave it a shot.

This shot was taken at after 10PM EST, it was very dark out.
















I’ll be the first to say it….definitely not something to write home about.  I have all new things to tweak and figure out.  I was using my Canon EOS Rebel t6, my tripod, and a remote for the shutter.


More night sky















I’ve got a lot of work to do, but I’m sure I’ll be able to get those fancy milky way shots that we see all the time eventually.  However, now that I’m in a new part of the country I can’t wait to get out and do some exploring here and see what type of photographs I’ll be able to take.


If anyone has any recommendations on settings for the Canon EOS Rebel t6 please comment and let me know.  I’d love some help, as you can see I struggled more with focusing with this camera currently.  Unfortunately the 18-55 doesn’t have focus to infinity so I tried a few tips I saw online.  I probably could have done better if it wasn’t about 20 degrees outside….lol.
