After dinner I took my camera outside just to play around and I was AMAZED at what I could do just playing around! This is our front yard, it even picked up the color of the grass from just the faint light from one of the distant houses. This was done in the dead of night (I couldn't see Aaron standing next to me) at f/1.8, wide open for 30 seconds.
This next one was just shot straight up at the sky with the same settings as the one above...if I zoomed in on some of the bigger stars you could see galaxies in some of them. It's just amazing how much out eyes can't pick up but that the camera could.
I'm looking forward to getting to play more tomorrow!!!
