Oooooh, it's amazing! :love: I'm going to La Palma tomorrow and want to try out this kind of photography there. Can you give me some advice? Like, at which time the stars are the most visible? Giggle

I'm glad you like it :) (Smile) 
Oh that's awesome! :D (Big Grin) You made a great choice. Wink/Razz 

Right now the moon is waxing gibbous, so to see many stars you'll have to wait for the moon to set, and I think tomorrow the moon will set at 4 am. So the best time will be from 4 to 6 am. But shooting when the moon is still visible will illuminate the landscape. Three great places for taking photos would be Llano de los Jables, La Cumbrecita and Roque de los Muchachos (the highest point on the island). And finally, use a high ISO, the widest aperture (smallest f-number) and an exposure of around 20-30 seconds. :) (Smile) Check out this moon phases calendar: www.moonconnection.com/moon_ph...

Enjoy your vacation!  ;) (Wink)

Ah, thank you so much! I'm very surprised that my parents didn't argue about whether we will go there that late (early?)! :D We will stay at Tazacorte. Which one would be the nearest? And do I need ADL for that kind of photos?
Reply
:iconsolrac1993:
Solrac1993 Featured By Owner Jul 18, 2013  Hobbyist Photographer
Haha :D You're lucky then! The nearest of the three would be La Cumbrecita. If you come from Tazacorte, then go to Los Llanos de Aridane (a town) and then to El Paso (also a town). when you've passed the center of El Paso then you'll get a roundabout. After that, right before the "centro de visitantes" you'll see a sign that says "Parque Nacional" (the National Park), you follow it and then you go straight ahead for almost 1 km and follow a sign that says "La Cumbrecita". After seeing this sign then keep going for another 6 km and you'll arrive to a parking lot in the middle of a pine forest between to large mountains. :) 
I've never used ADL because I use Canon, but after looking it up I'm pretty sure you shouldn't use it. ;) Good luck!

Okay, thanks! :D Another question, what is your favourite place/ beach at La Palma? I would like to hear advice by a native. (:

:iconsolrac1993:
Solrac1993 Featured By Owner Jul 18, 2013  Hobbyist Photographer
Actually my favourite places are the ones I mentioned before :D In my opinion the three best beaches would be Playa Nogales in Puntallana (but be careful, this one is a bit dangerous), Charco Verde in Santa Cruz de la Palma (the capital) and Playa Nueva in Fuencaliente. :)

Well when you said that this is the "Sagittarius Arm", I meant if the photo is showing part of that visible constellation. Get me now? :)

:iconsolrac1993:
Solrac1993 Featured By Owner Jul 17, 2013  Hobbyist Photographer
Oh, ok. Actually the Sagittarius Arm isn't a constellation but a spiral arm of our galaxy. It is named like that because as seen from Earth it's close to the Sagittarius constellation. And yes, both of them can be seen in the center of the photo. :)
