Capturing the Beauty of the Night Sky: My First Time Photographing the Stars on Jan 7, 2023

As a teenager with a new tripod, I decided to take some photos of the night sky to pass the time. I turned to YouTube for guidance, but ultimately had to play with the camera settings on my own to get the shot I wanted. I set the ISO to 6400, exposure delay to 3 seconds, and aperture to f25. The results were stunning – many of the stars I captured were not visible to the naked eye and the light we see in the photos is from millions of years ago, predating the existence of humans. It’s truly amazing to think about the vastness and history of the universe.
