    Hi guys, is it possible to capture anything using a 18-55mm kit lens? Please share some common settings as I've never done such a shoot before.

    East Coast Park VS Changi Boardwalk VS Punggol Beach

    Question is which place has less light pollution?

    Seletar reservoir yes, round here it was pretty clear when I setup awhile ago.

    Mm but Seletar I guess will have to shoot overhead. Prob can't see it in the background due to light pollution from Yishun.

    i got 2 places in my mind, changi jetty and Kent ridge park

    Changi jetty is because i had went there b4 and once they din switch on the pedestrian walk lamps... quite dark there @ night

    Kent ridge park - highest point with minimal overhead trees and blockage, can take landscape shots and overhead shots

    I suppose it will be quite hard to shoot.. as the Perseids will look like they r radiating from the Persus constallation, which will be northeast and rather near the horizon at that time. Plus there will be the rather bright wannign gibbons moon i guess it might be easier if ur shooting from a tall building?
