 Today's image is a bit different for me.  My camera got a firmware update which allows me to capture the night sky in long exposures without using a GPS addition.  It does it with the sensor of the camera.  It's very involved but very cool.  If you do long exposures without GPS help or without additional help the stars can start to trail and not look round any longer.    Before it got all cloudy and rainy I have been experimenting.  One of the few things I like about winter is that I get to see the constellation of Orion.  This is an image I made of that that I thought turned out pretty well.  This was a 25 second exposure.  I am still working on lenses and other issues for more telephoto type images that I will be sharing when I am happy with them.  This image is definitely best viewed large by clicking on it.


  1. Nice one Shelly.

    As you say it must be complicated as without moving the camera after a certain number of seconds you start to get star trails

    1. Thanks very much Jim! Yes, not sure how it computes and does it all but I really am impressed with the result.
