Dishes in Long Exposure!

53 minutes in a single exposure? The Canon 6D eats that up.

This image is a single 53 minute exposure captured at Narrabri. The dishes obviously moved during the exposure – at first I wished they hadn’t, but the more I look at it, the more I don’t mind it  Gives it a sense of movement, along with the star trails which show the movement/rotation of the Earth!

Captured at ISO100, f/11, 24mm with the Canon 6D and 24-70mm lens, 53 minutes single exposure.

To show what the Canon 6D is like with long exposures, here’s a 100% crop, completely unprocessed. No noise reduction applied, just straight conversion from RAW to jpeg and cropped. No ICNR either. Click the image below to download the crop without being resized.

The image was taken under moonlight so the sky is brighter than I would’ve liked, but it shows how great the 6D is in low light with long exposures, and how little noise there is!

Below is a shot similar to the top one, taken with a few minutes actually, but is just 18 minutes instead of 53 minutes of single exposure.

The shorter exposure meant some of the settings were changed to get the same ‘light’. This one was at ISO200, f/9.

Thanks for looking.
