    Re: Star shooting with D5000

    there is something to that sort in a book I just finished and learned so much from. it was called Nikon D5000 from snapshots to great shots. that book was so wonderful on tips and tricks for the D5000. It is a must read for sure if you just get the D5000. I havent had a chance to see the cherrry creek races yet but there is some awesome stuff to get lost in out there, if you like old abondened things.

    Yes -- that is the same book! Tremendous book that helped me understand how to go beyond scene modes!

    When you said old things I thought of Porter Rockwell's place where me and some freinds rode to several times and did a google search and found this --> YouTube - ‪Cherry Creek Utah To Porter Rockwell Ranch‬‏

    My legs are killing me just watching that guy on them whooped out trails. It is like Disneyland for dirtbikers.

    LOL I watched that same video the day we decided to go get stuck in the mud just after the trurn off for stone cabin above the cherry creek res. Its all fun till you have to call the sheriff to pull you out. ha ha ! I had a blast out at Rockwell taking pictures. Its nice to know something like that can still be there with as many riders that pass by, and do not destroy but take care of it. (for the most of them anyway) that is one thing I can say about most Utah ATVers is they try to keep what they have and tred lightly. BLM loves to try and take the fun out of adventure.
    I will have to pull the file and add a couple to the folder on here.
    and thank you on the moon shots. that was the shot that really got my Photograpy hobby from low gear to high. thinking I actually did that.

    Put the camera on manual and turn the shutter speed to 30 seconds by rotating the command dial.
    Are you trying for star trails?
