Milky Way with iPhone 6

CCD vs Film? Lots of time vs no patience? Alright, this is your place to discuss all the astrophotography what's and what's not. You can discuss about techniques, accessories, cameras, whatever....just make sure you also post some nice photos here too!

Milky Way with iPhone 6

Post by Yong54321 » Sat Mar 16, 2019 12:38 am

Hi friends

I would like to share some photos that I capture yesterday with my iPhone 6 camera. I am a newbie in astrophotography and astronomy but have some experience in programming. As such, I have made an iOS app over the past few months to take long exposure shot of the night sky. Yesterday the night is clear and at my condo pool side (Katong area), I manage to capture the Milky Way. It is my 3rd or 4th attempt. After some simple processing, the subtle Milky Way appears.Would like to take this opportunity to thank sherring for his posts. They have inspired me.

Please do comment on how to make it look better. Thanks very much.

Clear sky!
