  1. Hi all, I'm new to the forum and very new to night sky imaging. I've already introduced myself over on the "Welcome" section so I'm gonna repeat myself a little here, apologies. My friend and I are taking our first baby-steps into night sky photography so I'm here for all the help I can get. We're just starting out so our equipment is very basic, but I'm sure the more we get into this the more we will upgrade over time. Currently our set up consists of: Home-made Motorised Barn Door Tracker (my friend is an engineer) Canon 1100D with an 18-55mm Lens Laptop with BackyardEOS We took everything out for it's first test-drive last week and the tracker works really well. Even on very long exposures the stars remain as points and not trails so we were really pleased with how it performed. I've attached what was probably our most successful picture of the evening. It' not amazing, but it's a start and we were both pretty happy with it for our first go. I would really love to get some photos of the Milky Way in all its glory, and I'm hoping you all could suggest some settings to use, imaging techniques to try out, equipment upgrades, editing etc? We're on a bit of a budget but we have photographer friends from whom we can beg and borrow equipment. Any and all help and tips greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance. Jonny
