Post subject:  Time Lapse Astrophotography About !!

Hello My Friends, I want to start to film milk way soon. But, i have some questions to be answered by you. Especially this one; could you tell me the most important things that i have to be careful of when i am filming particularly what should i take care of about the Sky, and about my camera ? What steps i should take before i start to film especially for Astro-filming ? Also How I can Find Sky Milky Way Or Orion ? Do You know Find Milky Way Software ? If you could answer me when you are free, I would be so glad !!! Thank you so much.

First thing, read the resource thread. Lots of good info there.
Also, rad a few Astronomy books and magazines to help you find your way around the sky.
Orion? unless you are at the site of a solar eclipse, you won't see Orion at this time of year.

I'm glad someone finally posted a 'do some research yourself first' response. This is easily the friendliest most helpful forum I've been on but some of the "I've done nothing and I'm all out of ideas, gimme gimme gimme" questions that get asked often just seem rude and demanding.

I'm all for helping someone when it's obvious an attempt has been made, some lessons learnt, and some specific questions asked about problems encountered, but I'm surprised some of these "I demand you do everything for me so I can put my name on it" questions get the friendly responses they do...

Or perhaps it's just a boring day at work... ;)
