What you can do with 'no equipment'

Recommended Posts

Quite forgot I'd taken this image below.....

Sag Milky Way

Last summer we went on a holiday to Sedona, Arizona. One evening we returned to our hotel room late and I noticed a rather blurry sky. After finding my glasses I was astonished by what can be seen at what I didn't realise was a dark sky site. Unfortunately I wasn't prepared for this, so all I had to hand was my DSLR, a trustry 50mm lens, a tiny 'bendy' tripod and and a remote programmable timer. Was able to take the usual series of RAW light and dark images but couldn't manage flats. Quite pleased with the outcome given that I had no specialised equipment to hand. I am now very envious of those who can easily escape to dark sky sites with equipment in tow...

You can take flats with just camera and lens anytime (providing you can remember the f-number you set the lens to!) - may not remove the dust bunnies but it will get rid of the vignetting.
