Night Sky at Cedar Key

  • Needs a date

  • Needs a location

  • The group picture for this month was taken by Trace. At the meeting we discussed possibly going as a group when the conditions are right in Cedar Key. There's no date or time set, but if you RSVP to this we know you are interested in going when the conditions look right! Just leave the best way to contact you here phone number/e-mail.

    I see all of that from my front yard just about every night. My camera, however, won't pick it up. Even with my telephoto fully zoomed.

      Hi JP. Have you tried tips described in "How to Photograph the Milky Way" online? There are many pages with the same topic. Here is one of them: http://www.lonelyspec...­

    I would love to try some more night shots. Been struggling to find right conditions for milky way here in Florida. Need right sky/light pollution and time of year. I would love to give it a try with others.

    I have been Jesse and James there a couple of times and you can see milkyway with your naked eye. The only problem now is getting up early ;). MW rises just before sunrise. You could use this free software called "Stellarium" to simulate the sky at a given time and date, at a particular location.

    Light pollution is minimal around Cedar Key, so all we need is a cool clear night with little or no moon.

    I doubt we'd be able to do astro photography - I wouldn't be, so I suppose we should look for full moon (or close). I have achieved pretty decent results with 10 minute exposures, granted it was up in the mountains and there was a lot of snow which helped with the exposure.

    my point and shoot won't get star pictures. I look forward to see your pictures though.

    Garth, All you need is a tripod and the ability to manually control the shutter speed.

    I might need a ride but it sounds fun.

    November 11, 2013

  • Garth H.

    definitely interested. my schedule is "wack", but i'd love to make this happen. i'm really kicking myself that things got squiffy when we had the chance to meetup and shoot the starfields at payne's prairie. i'm not even sure my gear can handle this, but i would completely love giving it a try and pushing my camera as far as i can get it to go.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
