Och mann, ich hab nie soviel glück. :(

Wie geht dass denn? Also Brennweite 300mm? Ich dachte man sollte WW dafür benutzten und ASAmindestens 1600 um die Belichtung so kurz wie möglich zu halten, weil sonst die Sterne zu Strichen werden? o.O
Sind 3m nicht eigendlich zu lang?

Talk about a first step. It's something that interest me a lot too. Did it require a lot of new gear?

Great work!

Wow, I this is so beautiful that I can't find the words to describe.

I've been an astronomy buff for about as long as I can remember, have seen so many pictures of celestial objects: nebulae, stars and the like, and Pleiades strikes me as one of the most remarkably beautiful clusters man has seen. And I just can't believe the quality of this photograph, and how it compares to pictures taken with the best instruments out there... yet as far as I can see you're a nature photographer...which can only add to my bewilderment and appreciate this even more.

great great picture, the sharpness, the focus and the lovely blue. I'm in awe.

I've seen the Pleiades through my telescope, but I haven't seen them that clear...

Oooh, another one joins "the dark side" :)

Well done! Have you tried taking calibrating (with darks) and stacking? This may help: [link]

And for focusing, have you heard of Bahtinov masks? Very helpful, you can make simple ones yourself: [link]

I see - this sounds very difficult indeed! The result is brilliant, though!

Unfortunately my biggest lense is a 70-300/5.6 -.-' But thanks for letting me know :)

Extra dark where you are? We have so much light pollution even though I am 45 minutes from the city. :iconstarplz:

yes lkight pollution is a serious problem. i took this shot near my hometown kronach in the franconinan forest. Here in Germany there are just a few places where the milkyway is visible to the naked eye

I live on the east coast of North America. I can go to the mountains to find stars.

well, how are the conditions in the mountains? i mean, there is a high population density [link]
here in europe i have to travel to scandinavia to find places without light pollution.

Look on that lovely map and find the place along the east coast of North America where there are too many cities ... then go right bellow that and there is a band of dark blue that extends inland. Those are, I think, the Appalachian mountains and the Blue Ridge mountains. Those are the mountains I mean.
