    Milky Way photography

    All,

    Iím leaving tomorrow to Tenerif and just read that you can take great pictures of the milky way there, but i have not any experience with this type of photography.

    I have some Porta 400 and the Fuji GWIII69 a tripod, is this possible, any advice would be appreciated.

    Thanks
    Patrick

    Attached image done years ago by my son without using a tracker. Original image file looks 500% better. Yes there is a little bit of movement over the tree tops in the horizon, but I bet you that 99.9% of people viewing the image don't see it or don't mind it.

    In the northern hemisphere USA, Milky Way is overhead in the early summer but visible some months before/after, so time of year matters...

    Better check a star chart for the best season to view at your destination...

    Looks great, do you know the exposure time? Less than a minute?

    I only remember the camera being set on "B". My guess is probably one to two minutes.
