    Hi, first thanks for the awesome tutorial. Mind I ask what's the setup required for milkyway panorama ? Recently I've done with only panning ball head and shot 12 images vertically but failed to stack them in lightroom. The images seems off and distorted heavily.

    Josh…..  Thank you for a super video!  BTW:  I grew up in NW Washington, DC.  Went to Blessed Sacrament School near Chevy Chase Circle and St. Johns' College High School near Rock Creek Park.  That was back in the late 60's and early 70's.  Keep up the great work!!

    I fully disagree here, I do large amounts of astrophotography and the one thing I suggest to anyone who's starting is to use the 500 rule! It's so very important, you want the sharpest and best photo you can get right? If you're using a crop sensor the longest and let's say a 20mm the longest you can go without too bad of star trailing is 15 seconds. If someone were to go shoot at 30" they'd have a completely trailing photo if they were to zoom in just a little. I highly record using the 500 rule and it's not hard to learn!

    Wouldn't it be WAY better to Bulb to like 1 minute than to increase to 3200 ISO? 3200 is very high, very few cameras can make 3200 look good.

    its really good to see how great of shots you get with this intermediate gear. shows you really know how to use your equipment and it helps me to stop dreaming of having a really expensive full frame, and fast lenses and all that. Your videos are also scripted really well and you're very well spoken.

    I lived in Idaho way out in the country about 36 miles NW of Boise, but never got to see the heavily star studed firmament like I saw when I lived in Brazil! Disappointment that. Loved your vid and learned lots of tips!
