Post Need some advice. Heading down to Bryce for the weekend.
I would love some advice. I am heading down to Bryce after the weekend hoping to hit the new moon. I am going to shoot my first timelapse. Just a couple of questions.

Does anyone have any suggestions on good locations down there? I haven't been down there since I was a kid and am not very familiar with the park.

What is the best way to locate the main arm of the milky way? I have scoured all over the place but can't seem to find an easy way. From what I can gather, shooting south seems to be the best best. Is there an easy constellation or star I can use as a guide?

Thanks in advance.

Look for the constellation Sagittarius. It's where all the good bit's of the Milky way are. Iphone/android starfinder apps make it very easy to find.

The park is relatively small. I could give you suggestions to shoot but...where's the fun in that? Pave your own path imo. Find your own perspective.

If you're in a place with dark night skies (which Bryce is), the Milky Way stands out like a sore thumb. Use the starfinders you were born with: your eyes.

Me, I'd try to get one of those crazy Bryce Canyon hoodoos in the foreground...

Thanks for quick response. Now I just need to find some time to pack.

One other quick question. When shooting TL at night, it is better to have noise reduction on in camera or do it in post? I'm shooting on a 5dmk2.

Skip the noise reduction, but if you are worried about it take a "Dark Frame" (lens cap on) first with the same exposure settings to subtract the hot pixels later.
Bryce would be a great night location down among the hoodoos. Probably would want to scout out a few good spots while it is still daylight.
