First skyscape images
« on: 14:46:23, 20 November, 2017 »
Hi Everyone,

Just took my first batch of starscape images at the weekend. Pretty pleased with the result but I'm sure there's a lot I could do better! Anybody have any good tips on improving the images?

Also, I'd quite like to connect the stars up to show the constellations. Do people just use photoshop for this or is there any other good software out there for it?

All shot with Canon 450D with kit lens. f/4.5, ISO 1600, 15 sec exposures then tweaked in Lightroom.

Thanks a lot!
