Shooting the stars

We have scheduled our astrophotography night for Monday April 17. Meet at 8:15 at the Klondyke Soccer Field just south of Grand Bend off Highway 21. You can access Klondyke Road from either Highway 21 or from Greenway Road.

Remember to bring your tripod, wide-angle lens, flashlight, and warm clothes.

Set your lens to its widest aperture, set your shutter speed to 20 seconds, and then over a series of test shots adjust the ISO to obtain a good exposure.

Check the focus on your shot by zooming in on the playback review. If the stars appear to be moving then shorten your exposure time and increase the ISO to compensate.

Have fun
