Nočný pohľad z Lomnického štítu. Rovno súhvezdie Orion, pod ním vychádza jasný Sírius. Dole Tatranská Lomnica, za ňou vpravo Veľká Lomnica, ďalej vpravo Spišská Nová Ves. Vľavo bližšie Kežmarok, vľavo na horizonte osvetlená obloha nad Prešovom, rovno na horizonte obloha nad Košicami.

Jan, Hello from Tunisia (North Africa). Please, could you explain to me how do you make this nice photo. Duration of the exposition, Aperture, ISO Number .... Thank you I TABAI

Jan Balaz on October 19, 2008

Hi I TAB, exposition time = 263 seconds, Aperture = 3.5; ISO = 200. However, due to long exposition time, the stars were exposed as short lines. The bright stars were artificially "shortened" in Photoshop. You can still see uncorrected lines of faint stars.

Hi Jan Balaz, Thanks for the answer. It is interesting. More than 4 minutes of exposition and no vibrations ! you must have a good tripod. Your camera is equipped with the "pose B" function ? Is it equipped with remote control ? Thanks again. I TABAI
