My ingredients for star-photography: a tripod, shutter speed at 15-20 seconds, higher ISO 800-1600, wide-angle lens and low f-stop, here I used 2.8. The photo was shot on a mountain plateau near Vienna, called Hohe Wand (“High wall”) where you have an unlimited view of the sky and no light smog of surrounding cities. The best receipt to get shots from a clear night sky with a vast amount of stars.
