This is part two of the Introduction to Night Photography series, where we will be focusing (!) on photographing the night sky, particularly stars. This is an intermediate to advanced lecture, recommended prerequisite for this lecture is that you either attended part I, the Introduction to Night Photography or you have at least experience shooting at night. Even though we will briefly go over basic settings again, we will not spend much time on that.
