communication technology at georgian bay district secondary: the future of photography

Astrophotography warmup


So, my goal is to get some pretty pictures of the shiny things in the night sky here in Chile. Northern Chile is noted for being the best place in the world for this kind of photography. Came home late one night to see this.

A first attempt at astrophotography in Chile. The shiny spots of light are suns. Or planets. The 'clouds' are nebula. I think. Note the light pollution from the city of Los Angeles about 20km south of my location. The hardest thing to find for astrophotography is a location that is truly dark. I'm trying this again in a better location in a couple of days. Kinda excited about this.
