    A Primer to Widefield Astrophotography with Olympus M4/3 - by Ivan Bok
    Harnessing the power of modern day digital sensors


    How to Photograph the Milky Way or Star Trails?

    Astrophotography in its simplest form is increasing in accessibility, especially with today’s affordable, large sensor, high signal-to-noise ratio digital cameras.

    In Ivan's opinion, there are few photographs that have as much existential impact as a nighttime landscape against the Milky Way.

    Here, Ivan will show you how to make an amazing photo of the Milky Way Galaxy with a minimum of effort and a minimum of m4/3 equipment and latest Olympus M.Zuiko Digital 17mm f/1.2 Pro Lens.

    Hi there! I submitted my name pretty early, but my name isn't listed. Does that mean I can't join in at all?
