Robert Palejs
Do you gaze up at the night sky with wonder?

What about looking up at the stars and thinking, how old that light you are seeing is?

Maybe you watch as day and night morph into one, and the stars come out to play.

This meetup is going to cover everything you need to know to start capturing amazing single-shot astrophotography and a few extra bits of helpful advice. The learned basics of capturing a single frame will form the building blocks of your astrophotography journey. Think of this meetup as your first step on that journey or for those who have already started, maybe a road sign.

Astrophotography looks amazing and packs a real punch, however, you do not need to spend a fortune to partake. Does gear make a difference, the simple answer is yes, but it is not the deciding factor when it comes to astrophotography.

This meetup will look at planning your session, camera settings, and required equipment. I want this meetup to help you maximize your current gear as your start capturing milky way shots.

    In between rain showers, I caught this Australian King Parrot having a quiet feed. I shot it on a Canon R7 with a Sigma 150-600 mm zoom 1/500 sec at f8 ISO 2500. It was an overcast day but I have found to get a nice sharp bird shot I need at least 1/500 sec and F8 is the sweet spot of the lens. I used to worry about ISO but the R7 and a bit of Topaz magic crushes any noise.
