Stars

Presented here is a collection of photographs of stars that I have taken. All using my Canon EOS 20D paired wonderfully with a Canon 50mm f/1.8 EF lens. If you can identify the stars and constellations in these photos – then leave me a comment and tell me what’s what!

My favorite shot of the stars I have done so far. I believe that that is Orion?

Look! Is that a galaxy? I do believe it is…

Shutter Speed: 15 seconds

I’ve always wondered… what is that on the right side of this picture??

Shutter Speed: 30 Seconds
f/1.8
ISO: 3200

This is one of the first shots of the stars I ever did. I suppose that’s a cloud in this picture, although it looked like a clear night.

A shot of the stars through the clouds! I’ve always liked the look of the clouds in this picture, and the one below.

Shutter Speed: 15 seconds

I believe that is Mars at the top of the picture. (If I’m wrong – correct me!) Again – a shot through the clouds.
