I've got a Canon SX110IS.....is it capable of taking pics like these (not the professional ones, obviously)? If so, how?? LOL I've played around with the shutter speed, but I'm thinking that doesn't matter at night with a digital. Or am I not braining good?

For the shots I did (http://www.advrider.com/forums/showp...&postcount=107) I set the camera to manual mode... open the shutter up to 20-30 seconds, f-stop way down, ISO up to 600ish (Goes up to 1000 but the image gets real grainy), and set the camera up on a gorillapod. Use the 2sec timer to stop the vibration when you hit the shutter release.

Takes about 60secs for the picture... after the camera captures it, it'll process it to filter out noise. I shoot with a Sony DSC-H2.

Looks like this one's close to yours: SX100IS. Good news is it has a manual mode, bad news is it only goes up to 15secs. Play with it and see what you get

Star Trails in Northern Arizona
AM I reading that right? 58 minute exposure on the last one?

3535 seconds?!?

Looks about right, doesn't it? One hour is going to be 1/24th of a full rotation. And you're seeing about 1/24th long arcs of a complete circle.

It does, I am just amazed. I am new to photography, (3500+ clicks) on my D40... and for some reason my mind never wrapped itself around this shot requiring a near 60 minute exposure, until now.

All hail the EXIF data as a learning tool.

Chris,

Yes I was going for a one hour exposure and used my stop watch to time it. I cut it off a couple minutes early so I could go to bed. You need an hour or more for decent star trails. If you don't want trails then your exposure must be 25 seconds or less.

My house, last night, as I experimented with my tripod, ISO settings and shutter speeds. I am in awe of y'all's pictures. I hope I can take some half as good, I'll be a happy camper.
