I'll be off to Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park in South Africa in October and will be staying in rest camps in the park. Electricity is cut at all camps (of which there are only 3, around 200 miles apart) and there's nothing else for 100s miles around so it should be pitch black. I was thinking this would be the perfect opportunity to take some pics of the night sky (I'm looking at you for advice Dave/g8ina!). I have what's in my sig and only want some simple pictures, nothing amazing...something like this
Would I be able to achieve this with what I have plus a sturdy tripod, or do you need specialised equipment to achieve that?
