Last night I went out to shoot the Perseids meteor shower. I find shooting night skies exceedingly difficult, and have much respect for those who do it well. Camera settings are finicky, and more so when you are shooting in the absence of much light to see what you are doing. It really helps to have intimacy with your camera. I also find focusing tricky with not much visual cues to use. I brought both my canon DSLR and my Sony mirrorless camera and was pleasantly surprised to discover that focus peaking on the Sony actually worked on the brighter stars in the sky.
I'm not very pleased with these images, both for the fact that I didn't capture any meteor streaks of any note (there are a couple if you look very close) and also for the photo quality. I don't mind to share with you all though. If anyone has some tips for photographing night skies, feel free to leave comments below.
