Hello my fellow photographers,

I have recently found out when the milky way goes over my house every night. Yet I sent my camera up do the photos and I always seem to miss or I cant get my exposure right or something else. Im shooting with a Canon T3i and with the kit lens 18-55 mm. Can any one give me some tips. I normally do 15 seconds exposures and ISO is bumped high to reduced noise.

What are your shooting conditions? If you're in an urban area, things like street lights, business signs, that is any light polution at all, your exposures will be affected. The longer your exposure time is, the more unwanted light will affect your shots.
The best approach would be to preplan, get out of town in an absolute dark area.
