EOS 1DX and 1D Mk IV and several lenses!

I really love this Star Trails image over the river.   Great Job.



I'm a beginner at astrophotography, so I know my photos aren't great, but they're getting better!

I'm using a T5i with a 14mm lens from another manufacturer for wide angle shots, and an 8" Schmidt-Cassegrain telescope with the camera at prime focus for deep sky.

This is a shot that I took here in Great Falls Mt. of the Burlington Northern Railroad turntable and of the full Strawberry Moon. This full Strawberry Moon happened on the day of the summer solstice, and it happened to come up in the middle of this turntable. I guess it was the stonehenge that night lol. I used a Canon EOS REBEL T2i with a Canon kit lens 18-55 mm. I shot it  f5.6 @1/2sec  ISO 800 With a -2step. shot on a tripod .  I used corel paint shop to bring down the moon a little. The moon was still a little bright.  I shot about 20 shots and bracketing to get one that work.  And I had a very short window to do it. The moon did not stay there for long. Strawberry Moon
