Hi All,
I have been into photography for a while but mainly holiday and work (geologist) photos. I have also been doing deep sky astro imaging but have no decided to concentrate on nightscape photography. I am a member of the Perth (Western Australia) Cosmic Landscape Group (CLG) which is a part of the Astronomy Group of WA (AGWA).

Happy to discuss settings and suggestions for night scape photos of landscape and Milky Way.

Regards Grant Boxer
Perth, Western Australia

Welcome to PF. You made a good choice with the K-1.

I also used to do deep sky before redirecting to night landscapes. I got fed up with packing 25kg of astronomy gear, driving 100km, and having to do careful polar alignment.

What lenses do you have? Do you already have preferred processing software? Since you have deep sky experience you'll quickly adapt to night landscapes.
