    Care to share some of your setup for this? Even with a 30 second exposure and the iso cranked as high as Im comfortable with, I can't get nearly that much light in any of my astral photos.

    Sure thing!

    I use a full frame Sony and all my astro starts at 16mm, f/2.8, 30 secs, ISO 3200, and shot in RAW. If I ever need to adjust the exposure of a scene the ISO is the only variable, the other factors are locked in. That makes life so much easier! I manual focus and have a 2 sec delay on my shutter. After the image is taken it goes into Lightroom for post. I adjust the tonal curve to give it a 'S' shape, brightness/contrast to bring out the most stars, and temperature to give it the most color. That's the workflow in a nutshell. Any other adjustments are nuances specific to the shot.

    Hope this is useful!

    Thanks! That's what I did too. I have a Sony a6000, so not quite full frame, but close. I think my kit lens is a 16mm focal length as well. I was at 16mm, f/3.5, 30 seconds, iso 4000 in the shot below from the other night in Plumas NF. But your shot is way more detailed. I'll just have to play with it some more I guess, and start messing with the manual focus for this stuff. Have you found a way to have it expose for more than 30 seconds?

    Hows the woods looking up yonder? Time to start planning the finishing phases of my Plumas BDT trip.

    So I tried my hand at astrophotography with a little foreground light painting at Hidden Canyon, Moab. The glow in the background is the light pollution from Moab but makes for a cool effect.
