Re: Milky Way

The 500 rule is a good guide elongated stars are not pretty.

BUT if you set your ISO high enough then you will be amazed at what you camera can capture in under 20 secs. Certainly more than the naked eye.

If you look the at link in my post #2 it shows you whats possible.

Not sure what phone you have but Celestron do some free software called Sky Portal which is very good. Highly recommended. It works on Android phones, apple phones and iPads.
It certainly will help you in deciding where to point.
