#1 and #2 are ISO 100 #3 1600. I was just out side the city and there was still some "city light" in the backround.
I was just south of the city looking south west I think. so that would have put the pole just about above town. . . right?? I don't know very much about star maps. just a few names and about where they are. no more then that realy.
Still playing with the settings taking notes as I go. I had a small amount of time (only about 1hr. takes me 15-20 min to get there) before I had to pick up my brothers from the movies, so I only got 4 shots off. If I had more time I would have stayed longer.
It might be clear fri & sat so I will go out again.
I have got the canon 50mm 1.8 on order now. should have it next tue or wend.
How far would one have to be to be far enough away from the city lights?
I was about 2.5-3 miles away the way the bird fly's.
