Clouds and Stars by MarshallLipp Clouds and Stars by MarshallLipp
Nikon D800 with Tokina 17-35
Bismarck, ND

Trying some light painting
A light layer of clouds rolled in and kinda ruined my startrails. I tried to salvage the night with something decent

It was definitely below freezing, My new RRS tripod had frost on all the legs!!

*grin* thought so. have you tried doing Infrared photography yet?

MarshallLipp Featured By Owner Mar 2, 2013  Professional Photographer
No, I dont think my D800 will capture Infrared light that well. Doesnt one need a converted camera?

i think that's usually the case. you might be able to use a dedicated filter [link] that will do the job well enough (if i read the article correctly). A camera specifically calibrated for IR would in theory render better and more accurate results, but i personally do not have that rather expensive option to add to my kit. Would still like to try this someday, since i love the surreal effects it produces.

Views like these make me so jealous! Being in a place with a significant amount of light polution, I've never seen the stars as beautiful as these in the night sky.

Amazing! I love how the stars stand out so bright despite the clouds. I love how you captured Orion and Sirius, and the red glow of the star Betelgeuse is stunning :)

Are you using a special setting in order to capture starry skies so clearly? My camera is not professional, but it doesn't even manage to focus on the stars :/

:iconmarshalllipp:
MarshallLipp Featured By Owner Dec 8, 2012  Professional Photographer
I manually focus my lens to infinity. Settings are around 30 seconds, low f/stop, and adjust the iso accordingly

Oh I see now, thanks so much for the info :)

I will try ISO 800 and f/4, it approaches your settings and shutter speed as much as possible :) Thank you!

I love how Orion showed here :love: But Sirius is a bit too big. I'm aware of the clouds that blurred it ;) Where's that?
