I managed to take this photo before turning in for the evening (I sleep so early these days!). This 9:15 pm photo still shows a little glow from the sun, but the lack of a moon and the less-polluted skies allow for some decent star photos, even from suburbia. That bright star in the center is actually the planet Venus. Super bright as usual! This is a 13-second exposure using a Sony NEX-6 and Sigma 10-20 mm lens, at a 15 mm full-frame equivalent focal distance, ISO 3200, with a quick edit in Adobe Lightroom 5.7. 🌌
My camera and photos
I’ve been using an X100 series camera daily since August of 2015, and most of the photos on this site and my Instagram are taken with it. Why not pick one up for yourself?
