Here’s what I learned:

1. Mirrorless cameras are great for 99% of all photos in Hawaii. With astrophotography, they have their limits.
2. Use a fast, wide-angle lens. This one was not, but still did very well.
3. Don’t use too high of an ISO. My shots at 6400 were too noisy. This one at 3200 was passable.
4. Use Lightroom to tweak all of the RAW settings…ALL of them! 😉
5. Go shoot with Mat Siltala. Astrophotography is his passion. Shooting a stunning Milky Way with him will help you get the most out of your shots and bring a tear to your eye.
