    Hey Josh, just wanted you to know I almost passed your video because you're so young and I generally prefer more experienced photographers tutorials. BUT I got sucked in by your laid back and straight to the point style of video, and you impressed me! Nice video and I hope to see more. I'm a new subscriber. Your upbeat but genuine attitude sold me 🙂

    @Josh, I am a beginner photographer. I have taken a few fine milky way shots with canon 80D and sigma 17-50 f2.8. I shot a bit zoomed it. Probably at 30mm. But if I used anything longer than 7 seconds I got star trails. How did you manage a 20 second shutter ?

    I have a lot of questions 😂😂 First, is any wide angle okay? I found one that is a 28mm, f2.8 and is manual focus…I have a Canon rebel t6… I haven't gotten to experiment with the lenses I do have(I don't think they'll work but I get mixed advice lol). So I didn't know if I should get that 28mm to start out with? And also, is there a website or list or something that can explain some of the different lenses that are out there?

    Use a red light, it preserves your night vision. White light destroys your night vision.

    This helps so much. I just bought myself the Sony Alpha A6000. I tried some last night and completely failed. I will try more tomorrow!

    This is so helpful. I've watched a few videos, and they don't go in to detail about the aperture and ISO, so I had no idea how to do any of that. Huge thumbs up to you bro, thank you.

    If you don't want to pay for Lightroom, there's a great free alternative Darktable. Works great on Linux. Lots of YouTube tutorials.

    You should not use a microfibre cloth to clean the fog off your lens as it will not help. My telescope uses dew heaters. Wiping a lens will move around dirt and dust and scratch the lens and just move the water around, it will end up fogging up again.

    Hi, first thanks for the awesome tutorial. Mind I ask what's the setup required for milkyway panorama ? Recently I've done with only panning ball head and shot 12 images vertically but failed to stack them in lightroom. The images seems off and distorted heavily.

    Josh…..  Thank you for a super video!  BTW:  I grew up in NW Washington, DC.  Went to Blessed Sacrament School near Chevy Chase Circle and St. Johns' College High School near Rock Creek Park.  That was back in the late 60's and early 70's.  Keep up the great work!!

    I fully disagree here, I do large amounts of astrophotography and the one thing I suggest to anyone who's starting is to use the 500 rule! It's so very important, you want the sharpest and best photo you can get right? If you're using a crop sensor the longest and let's say a 20mm the longest you can go without too bad of star trailing is 15 seconds. If someone were to go shoot at 30" they'd have a completely trailing photo if they were to zoom in just a little. I highly record using the 500 rule and it's not hard to learn!
