Turret Arch Milky Way.
 
After I finished my workshop in Rocky Mountain National Park, I have been here in Moab with the Tamron Mobile Learning Center, Ken Hubbard and Patrick Nagle, doing night sky photography images. It has been a great experience so far to go out and shoot with two great photographers day and night. Last night we “nailed it” as one of the other Tamron folks would say. We did Balanced Rock, Windows Arch and Turret Arch all in about 3 hours starting just before 2a.m. You really should try and join us at one of our National Parks Night Skies Workshops in Yellowstone, Zion or Acadia!

  1. I am curious that an f2.8 aperture works so well. I would have thought a very small one would be better?

      The name of the game with night skies is length of exposure, so the shorter you can keep the exposure the better. I don’t like to go above ISO 3200 due to noise, so 30 seconds is required as well. I did a few exposures at f4 to experiment but was much more pleased with f2.8.
