Starry Nights

 

Starry Night Text

In the Spring during blooming season in my garden of Hemerocallis Daylilies I spend a lot of time among the beautiful smiling faces that greet me in the fresh early morning. I set up my camera on a tripod, select the correct lens and settings and begin to take the best photos I can to record the beauty, as they only last for one day.  When the sun goes down my attention turns to the night sky where my other interest begins to come into focus. I reset my camera settings for long exposure and wide open lens to gather in as much light as possible. Here in Florida we do have a lot of clear nights and starry skies. Some of my photos of the night sky were taken with standard camera lens and some were taken with a small telescope. The camera is mounted on a sturdy tripod with a clock drive to follow the stars across the sky. Some photos are wide views of the sky showing the constellations. Other photos are of stars, nebula, galaxies, comets and meteors or whatever is on display that night. If you see them be sure to comment and tell me what you think.
