  1. Milky Way over a bridge near my hometown. (Leica X2 at f/2.8, ISO 1600, 15 seconds).
  2. Hi all, A few months ago, I started a thread inquiring how well suited the X2 was for taking star-scape photographs. I'd like to contribute to the answer to my own question with a few examples of images I made last weekend in Colorado at the Rocky Mountain Star Stare (a star party held at about 7600 ft. elevation). Under nice dark skies, the little X2 can really perform. The first two photographs were made at f2.8 and 15 seconds at 3200 ISO. At 15 sec. stars are beginning to trail due to the rotation of the earth. The third photo (same subject as the first) was made at 8 sec. Trailing is not an issue at this shutter speed. There is a higher noise to image ratio at 8 sec., but it is easily controllable, and the final result is no less realistic. (For those who don't mind stars that look like short sausages, 30 sec. can be pretty amazing.) I desaturated the second and third image somewhat for better verisimilitude—although, really, the eye cannot see even that much color in the Milky Way, but a little color looks nice, I think. All photos were processed (quickly and dirtily) in Lightroom and exported for email. I hope they work well with your monitors. All in all, I'm very happy with the performance of the little Leica for making star-scape images. Brent
