This is an amazing video of night sky time lapse, which was shot with the following equipment:
- Canon 60D and T2i
- Tokina 11-16 ,Sigma 20mm F1.8, Tamron 17-50
According to Wikipedia , South Dakota is about 2,200 ft to 7,244 ft above sea-level. I'm planning to get a Tokina 11-16mm f/2.8 to do night sky time lapse photography. I'd like to capture the movement of the Milky Way also. My location is 216.898m (711.607 feet) above the sea, and my camera is a Canon 60D.
I'm planning to shoot in RAW format, 30 seconds exposures F2.8 or F1.8 with 3 second interval between shots and ISO 1600.
I'm not sure if I'm able to capture Milky Way or stars well. Given the location elevation, camera, lens and the previously described settings, will I be able to capture Milky Way? Please give suggestions and comments as to whether the settings or lens are correct or not.
