Night Sky Photography (with my EOS-M)

After recently witnessing the lunar eclipse, I thought it might be cool to see how my EOS-M performed when taking a long exposure photograph of the night sky.

After a bit of research to work out where I needed to direct the camera in order to capture some of the Milky Way, I prepared for the photograph. Camera firmly fixed to a tripod, exposure set to Bulb, ISO 1600, RAW capture (as always) and aperture wide open, I experimented with a number of different exposures with varying degrees of success.

Although the photo below is by no means perfect, the exercise did prove to me that with a bit more practice and experimentation I should be able to use this versatile little camera for respectable night sky photography.
