Yes, a lot of images and thumbnails have been lost. They are not recoverable. More notices likely in coming weeks.

astro

I'm going to the grand canyon and arches next week, will be camping for some of it. I want to take advantage of the low light pollution and do some astro photography, something I've only really done once before. I have a x-t2 with 35mmF1.4, and a Sony rx100m3 (16mm-70mm equiv). Last time I just used the rx100 at 16mm wide open, using the self timer function to reduce vibration, and setting the shutter speed to like 20 seconds. How can I improve on this? Does exposure bracketing make sense to get some of the foreground, or is that a dumb idea considering the long shutter speed and star movement? How do I best capture a beautiful shot of the milkyway? What do I need to keep in mind if I want to illuminate the foreground with a lantern/flashlight? Thanks, all help is appreciated
