Here are a few that I took while climbing Mt. Kilimanjaro. These were taken at Karanga Camp at 13106 feet with no moon biggrin.gif with a D5100 and Tokina 12mm @f/4

The Milky Way. Although we were camped on a slope; my camera was angled also mad.gif



Summit @ 20 seconds



Summit @ 20 Minutes



The journey was a blast and the stars were incredible. I was always so exhausted that I didn't spend as much time with the astrophotography as I wanted. Maybe next time wink.gif

I've been trying to find Neptune and Uranus to take some pictures of them, but finding them in a bit of a light polluted sky is a bit painstaking. I've used sky charts to find the constellations they are near, but when I grab the binoculars, I can never tell if I've found them or not. The blueish-tint that you'd expect is nowhere to be seen. Anyone else had luck capturing these two? I'd assume 800mm focal length is more than enough to get them.

Get Google Sky Map if you own a smartphone/tablet.

I have something similar on the iPad that works great, I just can't ever seem to find it when looking through some glass. I think my issue is that I'm looking with binoculars that have quite the magnification. I should use a weaker pair.

Going to try tonight. I'll be be curious to see how I'll be able to acquire them via the live-view function.

There isn't much going on in my neck of the woods other than everything being obliterated by moonlight...so I'm blue:

I'm gonna take the 40mm out and see what it can do in terms of longer exposure shots.
