Hi all

I was stargazing this weekend and decided to take some pictures with the K-3II and the astrotracer.

So i shot a series of pictures with various setttings just to test the equipment. Some pictures i am very pleased with and only a few seemed to have startrail. All in all i am very satisfied with the results, even though i'm still learning.

This image was taken on Mt.Parnon Greece at an altitude of 1420m where is our dark sky observing site. In the foreground is my trusty Celestron 11" SCT. The image has an exposure of 120 sec with the Tamron 17-50 f2.8 lens and the astrotracer enabled and shows virtually no signs of startrail. Impressive result. Other astrophotographers present (with Canon gear) were also very impressed by the result.

But i have something to say. When i was taking the pictures in the field, the images in the LCD screen of the camera were looking spectacular. Not so when i downloaded the raw files to my pc. Colours were...well let's just say not spectacular. The images needed some work to produce a fine result.
