[Total: 0   Average: 0/5] 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 My Full Kit: (Affiliate Links) Nikon D850: Sony A73: Tamron 24-70mm f/2.8: Tamron 15-30mm F/2.8: Sony 28mm F/2 Lens: Sony 55mm F/1.8 Zeiss: Haida 150mm Filter Holder: Rode Lav Mic: Zoom H1 Recorder: Rode SC3 adapter for Zoom H1: Sony A73 Intervalometer: Follow Me: My website and newsletter: Video Rating: / 5

    Also, for anyone with a Canon crop sensor (APS-C) it's a 1.6X crop factor. And for anyone with an android device, I recommend an app called Sun Surveyor. Very similar to Photo Pills, but for android.

    Great video, from my experience though anything more than 20 seconds or so on a crop sensor camera like my Canon 50D and the 70D you get enlongated tic tac shaped stars. I usually go 15 secs or 20 secs both work out pretty well except the 15 sec ones are bit darker and less crisp. The 28-135 and 18-55 work good as well as my 55-250. 18-50 seems best even though it's lowest setting is fl3.5. I'm gonna bet if I borrow my friends 70-200 2.8 IS I'd get some interesting shots.

    You speak too quickly without interruptions. Speakers in a different language must slow down your video.
