Long exposures I want to take photographs at night-particularly of star trails but I don't know how to set the exposure for longer than a minute; is this even possible?

The only way i can think of is by using a remote release which should give you the option to set it for longer.

Is there a good reference sheet for camera settings? For example, if I wanted to shoot a long exposure at night, what are the recommended range of settings for aperture, time of exposure, etc.?


There are dozens, perhaps hundreds of books with such suggestions, but I've found that even at night, the automatic settings on my Canon EOS Rebel are amazingly good. I recommend "The Joy of Photography", if it's still in print, by "The Editors of Eastman Kodak Company". An excellent old book that covers all the basics.

The nighttime pictures I've taken were done by setting the aperture to something mid-range, and letting the camera choose the time of exposure, and taking several pictures with different settings for "over" and "under".

How do I set the settings to take a night moon shot?


Assuming you mean pictures of the moon itself and not a night shot with the moon in it, set your camera to the manual exposure mode and ignore the light meter.

There's an old rule-of-thumb called the "Sunny Sixteen Rule." This states that the proper exposure under a midday sun is an aperture of f/16 and a shutter speed of 1 over the ISO. For example with an ISO 200 film or a digital sensor set at ISO 200 the proper exposure is f/16 and 1/200 second.

What does this have to do with night shots of the moon? Well, the moon is simply a large piece of rock under a cloudless midday sun. Thus the Sunny Sixteen Rule gives you a starting point for the exposure. You can then refine it by reviewing the picture on the LCD and looking at the histogram. The sky will go completely black and you won't see any stars, but you should be able to see at least some of the features of the lunar landscape.

Solution for blur camera nikon d5000 when take pickture at night time


It may be your exposure combination. The blur is because your shutter speed is too slow. You did not say what you are photographing at night and without that information, I can only speak in generalities. It all depends on the light source. If you are taking pictures of illuminated signs, auto exposure modes might work great, but if you are shooting incident light rather than pointing your camera at the light source, I would use a tripod and use manual exposure. Adjust your ISO to a high number. That will allow a faster shutter speed to stop motion.

I can not get my Telescope to focus so a picture appears!


You should read the manual - available in the customer service section at meade.com. This is s 'D'eep 'S'pace 'I'mager, so it is geared for faint objects using long exposures (30 seconds and longer). Focus by locating a bright star in the camera, and adjust the telescope focus control for smallest star image. Then move to object wanted to photograph, and begin the long exposures.

SHOW ME HOW TO START LONG START EXPOSURE ?


The camera conducting a pre-photographing and a main-photographing for conducting a displaying-at-long-time-exposure, the displaying-at-long-time-exposure is continued still after main-photographing starts.

Since the displaying a pre-taken image and the renewing the predicted images thereafter start from the time point, at which a release button is full-pressed, a user can confirm the predicted images in almost real time during the long-time-exposure is conducted

Unfortunately Kodak Easy Share C643 is not capaistated for this purpose.

Blue corners when shooting in BULB


With the same exposure settings, you should get the same result. When using Bulb in Manual mode, you also need to be sure you have set the lens aperture to the largest opening (lowest number). And don't forget to set ISO to 1600. Since the D80 has shutter speeds as long as 30" (minutes) I recommend you use them instead of Bulb, unless you need longer.

The blue areas are heat noise from long exposure -- other electronic components near the sensor are generating heat from the constant current flow. Be sure you check your Shooting Menu settings to set Long Exposure NR to ON and also High ISO NR to HIGH.

Extremely long time writing to CF card


IIRC these cameras support a noise reduction feature through a custom function. The camera will take a second exposure with the shutter closed (i.e. against something pure black) to see which pixels in the camera are "hot", and then will use that information to remove that hot pixel noise from the original image. "hot" pixels depend on temperature and exposure length so the camera would need to do this on every shot.

What are defect pixels?


Ocassionally images from digital cameras will have "defect" pixels. These pixels may appear in the final photograph as bright white, green or red spots that are out of place when compared to the rest of the image. Sometimes people call these spots "hot" or "dead" pixels. Usually these pixels, and other types of "digital noise" appear in the darker or underexposed parts of images; additionally, images taken at longer exposure times are much more likely to have this issue. Many Nikon cameras have a "noise reduction" or "NR" process that fixes these problem areas. When NR is activated and image exposure times drop below 1/4 of a second the NR automatically processes the images as they are saved. This Noise Reduction feature is sometimes called "Night Portrait" or "Night Landscape" Scene Modes. If these spots are seen on images photographed under normal conditions (bright light with exposure times shorter than 1/4 second) then the camera may need to be sent in to a Nikon Service Center for repair. Notice the green defect pixel near the center of this image.
