Night Watcher by PeterJCoskun Night Watcher by PeterJCoskun
Just returned from a short few days exploring the alabama hills, mono lake, and even a stop in death valley. My goal was to get some night photography done, and luckily I was able to get right to it upon arriving at this location. What you see here is the milky way galaxy rising across mobius arch as a small crescent moon begins to rise (the glow on the left).

Alabama hills- Lone Pine, California.

do you have an astrophotography camera because i can not figure out how to get the stars like that on my camera. (which is not an astrophotography camera.)

I just use a canon 7d. Not specifically designed for astrophotography, but I also used a lens with a fast aperture of 2.8. What camera are you using now and what lens?

i am using a canon rebel t3 with a 18 to 55 zoom with an aperture of 3.5 and an iso of 6400

The 18-55 lens usually will not work very well for night shots. One thing you also have to consider is getting very far away from any city or towns. You will have a better chance at viewing the milky way and the skies will be much much darker.
