    Jeroen Linnenkamp from the Netherlands joins me to talk Star Color & Europe Milky Way | Episode 175

    Jeroen Linnenkamp from the Netherlands joins me to talk Star Color & Europe Milky Way | Episode 175

    This week on the podcast I am joined by my first guest in a very long time, Jeroen Linnenkamp! Jeroen and I were talking about star color and he had the question about whether shutter could ruin star color the way that high ISO will blow out star color. I wasn't sure if there was a threshold when the exposure would start clipping the star color by shutter alone and so Jeroen did an experiment and shared the results with me for Milky Way Wednesday and today he talks about what those results mean to him.

    Along with that Jeroen shares adventures of Milky Way Photography from the Netherlands and a story about a beast that could have killed him while out enjoying fields of heather. Whether you are in the southwest of the United States or the low lands of Holland, Astrophotographers are always risking life and limb for the shot!

    Clarence Spencer talks Astro Mods on Milky Way Wednesday | Episode 174

    This week on Milky Way Wednesday I was joined by Clarence Spencer of SpencersCamera.com to answer all questions about Astro-modified cameras that the Milky Way Wednesday crowd could think up! In case you missed it and thousands of you most certainly did, here is a replay of the awesome breadth of knowledge that Clarence shared with my YouTube audience!

    This winter we all have been challenged to capture a Winter Milky Way Panorama and one of the most critical steps to a successful one is using an Astro-modded camera. Thanks to Clarence's business SpencersCamera.com we all have an affordable way to get that camera to use this winter!

    In between questions from the audience, Clarence also showed us how he edits his astro-modded images to give you a head-start once you capture your own astro-modded Milky Way image!

Great show for beginners AND experienced Astrophotographers

Jeff Harmon really nailed it with his description during the intro of the last episode. I wish I had this podcast when I was figuring out astrophotography for myself, five years ago.
In that time I’ve run two residential summer camps in locations with relatively dark skies (currently in Southeast Elbert County, CO). I have immediate access to some awesome places.
I feel like an amateur could listen to any single episode and glean the information that took me years to learn about the basics of astrophotography.
Fun podcast, awesome guests, and I love that they discuss mistakes and how they learn new things by making them or not realizing that they could have done something differently.

Disappointed

I listened to the podcast on Channel Islands hoping to learn more about the island. The podcasters couldn’t remember the name of the hike locations. Really disappointing.

Too much personal garbage

We don’t care about your divorce, or the girlfriends who you sleep with! This was supposed to be a photography podcast not a rehash about all your failures in love!
