Hello to all you Nikon folks.
New to your site but not to Nikons. I just recently decided to photograph star trails again. I used to do it all the time back in the old days with my Nikon FG. With the FG it was really simple, but with digital Im having a problem. Ive read much on the web and watched vids but cant find out what Im doing wrong. Have set my D5100 to M, followed by Bulb, wide lens setting, 800 iso, plug in my shutter cord, tripod. Im trying to go for 15-30 minute exposures. When I go to look at my 'done' picture, its completely white! No matter what I do, every picture comes out white. What am Im missing and doing wrong? Im very frustrated so any advice is greatly appreciated.
