I am completely new to photography and have just bought some second hand kit to get me started. See Below.
Panasonic GX1 Lumix
Samyang 12m F2
7Artisans 7.5mm F2.8
Skywatcher Star Adventurer Mini
Cheap Ebay lens heater
I aim to get to know my camera in the day but will predominantly use it for astro work. My first goal is Milky Way/Landscape shots.
So my first question question is what Iso/exposure and amount of shots would you take on your first few outings.
I have been researching lots of great images on Instagram and I notice how much difference there is in Exposure Time/Iso/Number of shots (For Stacking).
So I am all set up and the conditions are perfect.... What combinations of shots would you make?
5 x 5sec at 1600 iso
10 x 5sec at 1600 iso
5 x 10 sec at ............. etc etc the combinations are numerous and I know conditions/kit will play a big factor but just need a guide of where to start so I can find out what works best for my kit.
Any help much appreciated!
