Locate Astrotracer images in Lightroom

It's a quick one!

Can I easily locate images that I shot with Astrotracer over the years in my Lightroom Library?

Did you tag them "astrotracer"?

This may help. Try by exposure time?

I think this may be the only way to initially find most of them.

Thanks! I think I have them from an exposure time search. Rather underwhelming after that effort.

Best of the bunch

It all seems so simple when you watch a tutorial in the comfort and warmth of your home. In the great outdoors, when you are tired, cold and reliant on a red head torch it's so very different!

I must use Astrotracer more, but also intend to get a star tracker too.

This is the only Astrotracer shot I really like, it was at 120 seconds and in a rush of blood I did a vertical pano, 4 or 5 images I think. I wish I'd remembered to do an shot to focus stack the foreground (which is a bit of a giveaway that this is the Astrotracer!)

Thanks for your advice guys, much appreciated

For my 15mm lens, the best I can do with Astrotracer is around 30 seconds. Longer and my stars are too streaky for my taste in the corners. The center is sharp but with the sensor movement, the edges streak.

But I hope to take my 135mm out this winter and shoot Orion and the Pleiades. I think the longer focal lengths work better with that function than a wide angle.

Yes, for the reasons you describe, Astrotracer works better at 24mm and above. I only discovered that after buying the 15-30 D-FA Still, you live and learn!

I did some test shots on my newly acquired 77mm FA and the limiting factor is light pollution where I am. Get some dark skies and you'll be in business with your 135mm.

There's a great online field of view calculator that will illustrate how targets will look with most lens-camera combinations - have a look at FOV Calculator - 12DString
