In this video I teach a very basic tutorial on how to photograph the milky way. I talk about the type of gear needed, how to plan milky way photography, where to find the milky way, and camera settings to photograph the milky way.

Check out my blog post on Milky Way Photography:

Here is the formula for shutter speed:
Full Frame Cameras:
500/focal length
Ex: 15mm – 500/15= 30 second shutter speed

Crop Sensor Formula:
500/1.5 x focal length
EX: 11mm x 1.5= 17mm
500/17=29.4 or 30 seconds
