08hd_dynasgc First (unsuccessful) shot at star trails. The exposure settings were f/4.0, 30 sec, 1600 ISO, manual focus, continuous. For some reason the camera only took 4 photos for about 30 minutes. I uploaded them to Adobe Bridge, edited it the best I know how, then some more editing in Photoshop CC 2014. #astronomy #astrophotography #startrails #night #sky #stars #winstonsalem #northcarolina #nightscapes #photography #photoshop #canon #rebel #t1i 1mon
  •   08hd_dynasgc @nightskyguy_photography Thanks, man! By dark images do you mean with the lens cap on or a specific exposure setting? Sorry for the dumb question, first shot at star trails. I charged the battery because I thought that was the cause of only 4 images. 1mon
  •   nightskyguy_photography Never a dumb question chum.. I didn't know before either till saw/asked. Yep, take image with cap on.. Use same settings as your star images. Take a few darks bud at least 10. Let me know how next session comes out . 1mon
  •   darrylsmithphoto Google star trails tutorial then choose the one with digital photography school in the title. I think that's where I started when I wanted to learn. 1mon

08hd_dynasgc SOTD
Pre-Shave: Noxzema

Razor: PAA Double OC

Blade: Personna
Soap: PAA The Beach

Brush: The brush handle is 1 section of the Solid Rocket Booster (2) that were attached to the External Tank of the Space shuttle. I don't remember the brush type or maker, it was custom made for me.
Aftershave: The Beach
First shave in over 5 months. Since coming from from a Merkur 34c razor I decided to only go WTG just to get used to the OC design and shorter handle. As other reviews of this razor mentioned about leaving some behind; I definitely agree as it allows for a second pass to clean up some areas.
It was a great shave; no nicks, cuts or anything.
Finished with "The Beach" aftershave. Love the scent.

  •   08hd_dynasgc It's been raining on/off all day. I know all about those pesky mosquitoes when I lived in NY. I wonder if I'll see lightning bugs here; loved watching them as a kid. I'm gonna need to get allergy medicine for the pollen here. I'll definitely tag you. I've never photographed an ISS pass, but I'll give it a shot. Any tips? @trheme 1mon
  •   trheme Yes, we have lighting bugs, My yard is full in the summer. And I've never photographed an ISS pass. Do you have the phone AP ISS Detector that informs you when it is overhead? I might have to try getting a shot too. @08hd_dynasgc 1mon
  •   08hd_dynasgc @trheme Where are you from? Yes, that was one of my first apps I got for my s4. I like that it has a widget. 1mon

  •   08hd_dynasgc Oh nice! How close are you to Marshall Space Flight Center and the U.S. Rocket & Space Center? 1mon
  •   trheme Sry about my delayed response Frank, but I am about 2 miles from MSFC. Drive by Space and Rocket Center and the Saturn V everyday! So many exciting space related things take place here! Being an astronomy nut and space enthusiasts, I love living here! I am part of the Von Braun Astronomical Society and volunteer helping with astronomy related events. Is there an Astronomical Society there in Winston-Salem? @08hd_dynasgc 1mon
  •   08hd_dynasgc @trheme No worries. That's awesome that you live nearby. I'd go broke if I lived that close to the Space and Rocket Center. Von Braun was a genius. I'll have to check that out, but I'm sure we have something. 1mon

08hd_dynasgc First Quarter Moon shot last night. [ F/5.6 ● 1/200s ● ISO 100 ● 300 mm ]

I set the mode to Av (Aperture Priority) while letting the camera chose the best shutter speed.

08hd_dynasgc Solid Rocket Booster Aft Skirt which was created by Scott G. Phillips to support NASA and the Space Shuttle Program. The top of this piece is fitted with the Heroes of Columbia - STS-107 medallion to honor those Astronauts on that unforgettable day. Scott is on Facebook if you would like to see his other work.
