Artist's Description

This is the first time I’ve tried to capture the solar gallaxy, “WITH A NEW DIGITAL CAMERA”, compared to a film image that I did years ago. This one doesn’t quite have the glamor that the image I got on film had. This one has a lot of litter where on film there was none. Both images, old and newer digital, were both taken with a Canon camera. The old one was a Canon F1, with an assortment of lenses. Then, I moved onto the Canon AE1, then a Canon EOS620 and now I have two digital cameras. One Canon Digital KISS REBEL 300D and one Canon EOS 60D. With two lenses that fit both bodies, an 18-55mm on the 60D and a 75-300mm on the body of the 300D. I love the new 60D’s ability to go up to 6400ISO. I can actually take images of the Orion’s Belt and actually pick up some of the nebula also. Now I just need that 500mm lens with IS….mm…mm….mm. This shot was just taken about two weeks ago in the first part of December, 2011. The night was very clear, so I wanted to try and capture the circular motion the stars take on when the Earth’s rotation sits in one place of the lens on a tripod. This shot was around 20 minutes with my 60D on a tripod with my shutter locked open with my shutter cable. I took it from my back yard in Vacaville, California in The United States.
