    My daughter dislocated and broke her knee this week. I got to the school just in time to hop in the ambulance with her. Needless to say, photos have had to take a back seat this week.

    Ouch. I guess "break a leg" is not the appropriate response for once, huh? Good luck to her for a quick recovery!

    Thanks! Shes been a trooper through it all. I was able to sneak out this morning before anybody woke up, take a few landscape shots within a few minutes of my house and was back in time for fresh coffee!

    Young troopers always get recovery in no time. No worry TT.

    Are those landscapes around your home? Any facing south? Could be conveniently a nice scene for the Milky Way shot?

    Thanks @blackstar!
    That was my intention for my landscape shot last week was to do a Milky Way nightscape. Until the injury, that is. No, none of these locations are good for the Milky Way. They're all within 5 minutes of my house and I'm on the wrong side of a "hill" for southeast facing skies. Also, I have to travel an hour outside of town to get good skies, too much light pollution around here. Soon enough, though!

    I got this one a couple weeks ago right before the moon rose. Had to travel about an hour, ended up at a "campsite" with grass and RV's sandwiched together. Not a whole lot of room for picking a composition and this is what I ended up with. I didnt like the composition, but not too bad for setting up the tripod right next to the car and everyone's camp fires lighting up the surroundings. An hour-ish later, I snapped the below pic of the moon to in the same spot. The yellow lights on the horizon are my city lights, the orange one is the moon about to break the horizon. We have a couple "real" camping trips planned this summer for dark sky locations. Fingers crossed, the kiddo makes a full recovery before then.

    Re: TwistedThrottle's twisted images

    pardon my curiosity, why are iso settings so high with the long exposure and wide open? Do you need a faster lens? I'm intrigued

    @lucien
    This was the first time shooting night time with the Z6, so I wasnt sure what to expect. The lens max aperture is f4 and I didnt bring my star tracker, so it was a balance of enough time open without the star trails. I still got star trails, but because I wasn't wow'ed with the composition, I didnt put much time in this shoot and the moon was quickly washing anything that was there away. The moon was more fun to shoot and I intentionally dialed down the aperture in order to get the sun burst effect, but then I had to increase the ISO to (barely) keep the Milky Way in the shot. Again, not too thrilled with the composition and was mostly just getting a feel for the new camera and lens. Here is a shot with the 50 f1.8 AF-S on the D7500 at the same place.

    thanks for the explanation. It's not like shooting highway traffic at night is it? Light trails because those people get iso 100, 200. All good
