f/2.8 | 23 seconds | iso 400 | Rokinon 14mm f/2.8 IF ED MC
I picked up the Rokinon 14mm lens in September with pretty much one thing in mind, astro photography! This image was from my first outing to capture the stars!
On a clear night (in the city), I decided to head out to the country to escape the light pollution and finally get around to using the lens. After traveling over 30 miles into the darkness, I stopped to see what I can see….which, as it turned out…were only clouds! Ggggrrrrrr. After a few shots I quickly realised it was pointless so turned back home. 😦 As I was getting close to civilization I looked up and once again, the sky was clear (go figure). I really wanted a shot so decided to stop off at Northern State Hospital to see what I could see and glad I did. Over all, I am somewhat pleased with the image especially considering it was my first attempt.
I really look forward to getting more shots, feel free to tell me your thoughts as I always appreciate the feedback. Yes, in the future I won’t be tilting the camera up so much (distortion happens when you do that…think of what happens to buildings when you tilt the camera up). 🙂
Oh, one more thing…for the record, I have NO idea what the green’ish light is near the tall trees…no idea at all. It was a little after midnight and the buildings where the light is coming from shouldn’t have ANY lights at all…hmmmmm
