Tips: Night Sky Photography

1. Search for a location on the ground from where you can see the entire sky. The best option may be a huge terrace where you can frame the sky. Make sure there is no obstacle coming in between such as buildings or trees.

2. Mount the camera on a tripod (or a firm support). Mounting the camera and setting the speed.

3. Set the ISO to a lower speed (around 100)

4. Set the mode dial to shutter priority mode. You can set the shutter speed to the bulb setting, or can set it at a range of settings between 15 and 40 seconds.

5. Turn the auto focus mechanism off and then manually set the ring of the lens to infinity.

6. Position the camera and start shooting. It is better to use cable release/remote control in order to minimize the distortion. Alternately, you may set the timer mode and shoot image without a shake.
