I am loving photography, and love my Canon T2i. I am learning how to get better at it every day. Last weekend, I went up to our Northern Rocky Mountains to a high point, around 12,000 feet, and practiced my hand at astrophotography. Going up so high is great, since there is less light pollution, so those of us who live in Alberta, BC, or the Yukon Territories, you are in luck. Everyone else, well, maybe just move a little bit away from the city to get away from the light pollution.
This shot was taken at a 10 minute exposure, at about F4 and I think I had the Iso on at 800. The lens is a 28-135. I used an Apeture remote control to do the shutter and keep it down, and had it on a very steady tripod. A bottle of wine helped too!
