26 Aug, 2017. Soon comes the end, but not yet
📅
Seeing the Milky Way's core region low in the western sky means that we only have a few more months left to see and photograph this marvel for this year. Still, that means we have a few more months left to make the most of driving to find dark skies, dodging bad weather & the bright moon cycle and going without sleep. 🏢
I took this shot at Jerrara, a dairy region about an hour south of home. What used to be totally rural land is gradually giving way to urban sprawl, evidenced by how bright the foreground is here courtesy of light pollution. 📷
This is a single image taken with Canon EOS 6D, Rokinon 24mm @ f/2.4, 15 sec @ ISO 6400.

Captured the Milky Way on the clearest night we were at Saddlehorn in the Colorado National Monument. Amazing view from our tent and I can't wait to make our way back out West.

NGC 1097 est une galaxie spirale barrée située à environ 58 millions d'années-lumière de la Terre dans la constellation du Fourneau. Au sein de cette galaxie, trois supernovas y ont été observées en l'espace de seulement 11 ans : SN 1992bd, SN 1999eu et SN 2003B. Cette galaxie n'est pas uniquement le lieu de la mort d'étoiles mais aussi le lieu de nombreuses naissances. En effet, on estime d'ailleurs que la petite galaxie elliptique (en haut à gauche) joue un rôle dans ces apparitions stellaires. Elle a été découverte le 9 octobre 1790 par l'astronome germano-britannique William Herschel.

20 Sep, 2017. Stars and trails in the twilight
🤷🏼‍♂️
You've most likely heard of twilight, that time of day before sunrise and after sunset when the sun is below the horizon but its light is being scattered in the upper atmosphere and so the sky isn't totally dark yet. Did you know that the one term "twilight" actually encompasses three distinct stages of illumination of the sky? 
1️⃣
The first of the three is "Civil twilight", the least dark of the three and defined as being when the centre of the sun's disc is between the horizon and 6 degrees below the horizon. It's the first stage of twilight at night and the last stage before sunrise each morning. In some countries the time of civil twilight marks off restrictions on hunting and when car headlights need to be on or off.
2️⃣
"Nautical twilight" is when the sun is between 6 degrees and 12 degrees below the horizon. Before nautical twilight begins each morning it is almost impossible for sailors to navigate at sea via the horizon. At night it is the end of nautical twilight that finishes the period of viable visual navigation.
3️⃣
"Astronomical twilight" affects me and other astrophotographers and astronomers the most. At night we hang out for the end of astronomical twilight, when the sun is at 18 degrees below the horizon and its light no longer affects our skies. Once this line is crossed it's all systems go–weather and moon permitting, of course–for photographing all of the amazing lights above us. 🌌
This photo I'm posting today was shot during astronomical twilight last Sunday night. The Milky Way's core region looks a smoky-brown colour due to scattered sunlight in the atmosphere. The thin white trails streaking down towards the horizon at the left are condensation trails from aircraft passing over on the busy Sydney to Melbourne flightpath. Jupiter, the largest planet in our Solar System, is glowing big and bright just over the treeline near the right-hand chimney of the old Orroral Homestead farmhouse. The column of light between Jupiter and the aircraft trail at top-left is the glow of the Zodiacal Light. 📷
This was shot with Canon EOS 6D, Samyang 14mm XP lens @ f/3.2, 20 sec exp, ISO 2000.

Launch of a Delta IV Heavy
It is the tallest rocket in active use. The Delta IV Heavy is the largest of the Delta series, packing the punch of three rocket boosters instead of the usual one. The resulting rocket, the most powerful in use by the US Air Force, is capable of lifting over 23,000 kilograms into low Earth orbit, comparable to NASA's Space Shuttle.

پرتاب بلندترین موشک جهان
این بلندترین موشکی است که در حال حاضر مورد بهره برداری قرار می گیرد. "دلتا 4 سنگین" (Delta IV Heavy)، بزرگترین موشک از خانواده ی موشک های دلتاست و به خلاف نوع معمولی، به جای یکی، مجموعه ای از 3 بالابرنده است. حاصل این مجموعه، پرقدرت ترین موشک در حال کاربرد در نیروی هوایی آمریکا بوده و توانایی حمل بیش از 23,000 کیلوگرم بار را تا مدارهای پایینی زمین دارد که از این نظر با شاتل فضایی ناسا برابری می کند.

"Night Shadows"

Sometimes the most simple of scenes can have the most profound effect on us. It was in the early hours on an extremely cold night. The milky way shone more brilliantly than usual over this disused grain silo. It suddenly dawned on me that this view was the most magnificent work of art and I was there along with a couple of friends to witness it. Take the time to stop and look, it's so good for the soul.

18 Sep, 2017. Thanks for the invitation
🚙
Last night (Sunday, 17th September) I had a companion to shoot nightscape photos with. Ian Williams @imagesbyimw lives in Canberra, Australia’s capital city, which is just on 3 hours of driving from my home in Sydney. Ian invited me to come down and join him as he ran a nightscape photography workshop and then we drove further south to capture the Milky Way’s galactic core region as it fell down towards the western horizon for another night.
🌌
The skies were clear and crisp and there wasn’t much wind to speak of, so shooting conditions were wonderful. Ian shot some panoramas, time-lapses and single frame shots and I caught him here, in one of my own singles, as he was shooting out towards the west. Seemingly floating up over Ian’s head are the Large and Small Magellanic Clouds, two wonderful Southern Hemisphere sky features that are themselves galaxies containing multiple millions of stars. The star Canopus looks like a bright star cluster or even a tail-less comet over on the left, a result of some moisture in the air dispersing its light. The beautiful green hues of atmospheric airglow give the whole scene a wonderful colour base onto which the stars, foreground landscape and Ian seem to have been painted. Thanks, Ian, for the transport, accommodation and the chance to inspire each other. 📷

Quasars are arguably the brightest thing in the universe, they glow with such intensity that they drown out the light from the galaxy they are contained within. Quasars are the result of the friction and heat generated as black holes  suck in celestial bodies such as stars that get to close. The gases and debris sucked up whirl at unfathomable speeds around the accretion disc of the black hole before their eventual demise.
The friction created by this results in heat and an enormous amount of light, brighter than you could fully appreciate with out seeing in person. "3c 273" was the first  identified quasar (but not the brightest) and has an absolute magnitude of -26.7. This is estimated to be 4 trillion times more luminous than our humble sun and about 100 times brighter than our entire galaxy. If you were to put 3c 273 33 light years away from earth it would still shine as brightly as our sun. (which is a mere 8 light minutes away) Quasars exist only within supermassive black holes with majority of quasars being formed around 12 billion years ago while the universe was still relatively young. •
(An absolute magnitude is the same as and apparent magnitude but is instead what the brightness would be from 32.6 light years away from the observer  compared to the brightness as seen from earth.) • - k.b

The Climber and the Eclipse.  What should you do if your rock climbing picture is photobombed by a total eclipse of the Sun? Rejoice -- because your planning paid off. After months of considering different venues, and a week of scouting different locations in Oregon's Smith Rock State Park, a group of photographers and rock climbers led by Andrew Struder, Ted Hesser, Martina Tibell, and Michael Shainblum settled on picturesque 100-meter tall Monkey Face tower as the dramatic foreground for their images of the pending total solar eclipse. Tension mounted as the eclipse time approached, planned juxtapositions were scrutinized, and the placement of rock climber Tommy Smith was adjusted. Right on schedule, though, the Moon moved in front of the Sun, and Smith moved in front of the Moon, just as planned. The solar eclipse image displayed here actually shows a diamond ring, an eclipse phase when a bit of the distant Sun is still visible beyond the Moon's surface.

Two years ago, I posted this image on Instagram. At the time, it was my most popular image since it married my work and my passion. The contrast from the oil and gas industry to the night sky leaves mixed emotions for many, including myself.  One day I will leave this career behind to pursue my dreams, I know it, but unfortunately I have to count down the days until that happens .

I'm sorry for the delay in posting. Due to Hurricane Irma, I had to leave my home for work and deploy to south Florida. I'm now home and of course one of the first things I do is head out and look for stars. "Bioluminescence Surprise"
I have thought of this composition for a while and finally got it setup (with some haste) but the amazing part was the bioluminescence that was all over. I have never experienced this and while completely dark looking at the water was like moon reflections but without the moon. The fish and sea life must have been amazed as well because they were active causing the water glow as they jump and swim. I hope you enjoy!!

Discovered by Dr. William Herschel in the 1700s, with only a 100 million years old, Enceladus is the 6th largest moon of the 6th planet in our solar system.
About only 500 kms in diameter and more frigid than any place on Earth (-198° C), its thick ice cover makes it one of the most reflective bodies in the solar system. Its gravity too is very low: 0.13 m/s^2 (Earth's is 9.7 m/s^2). Its orbital period is 88 days and, has a composition that contains 91% of H2O (Gaseous), 4% Nitrogen, 3.2% CO2 and 1% Methane. It may have none or very thin atmosphere.
Enceladus is a precious world in our solar system.
It's stark, cold, beautiful and as far as we can tell, not devoid of life either. See, underneath all its hard exterior, Enceladus is liquid. An entire ocean of it; 65 kms deep. It has springs that are powerful enough to come out as hydro thermal ejaculations. Strong enough to break through the 5 kms thick icy shell. The features called "Tiger Stripes" in its southern hemisphere are the youngest feature on its surface, suggesting water trickling down the moon. Similar ridges can be seen all over its surface.
On Earth, life teems around hydro springs inside oceans; this is one of the reasons NASA thinks Enceladus is a perfect candidate to host life.
What do you think?

I'm sorry for not posting at all recently. I've been super busy with school and feel awful about not being able to post because I love doing this and I LOVE all the support I get from you. Thank you for sticking around and being so very patient.
See wonder and stay curious.

Its gravity too is very low: 0.13 m/s^2 (Earth's is 9.7 m/s^2). Its orbital period is 88 days and, has a composition that contains 91% of H2O (Gaseous), 4% Nitrogen, 3.2% CO2 and 1% Methane. It may have none or very thin atmosphere. Enceladus is a precious world in our solar system. It's stark, cold, beautiful and as far as we can tell, not devoid of life either. See, underneath all its hard exterior, Enceladus is liquid. An entire ocean of it; 65 kms deep. It has springs that are powerful enough to come out as hydro thermal ejaculations. Strong enough to break through the 5 kms thick icy shell. The features called "Tiger Stripes" in its southern hemisphere are the youngest feature on its surface, suggesting water trickling down the moon. Similar ridges can be seen all over its surface. On Earth, life teems around hydro springs inside oceans; this is one of the reasons NASA thinks Enceladus is a perfect candidate to host life. What do you think?

Stardust in Perseus

"But whosoever drinketh of the water that I shall give him shall never thirst; but the water that I shall give him shall be in him a well of water springing up into everlasting life."

This cosmic expanse of dust, gas, and stars covers close to 3 degrees on the sky in the heroic constellation Perseus. Right of center in the gorgeous skyscape is the dusty blue reflection nebula NGC 1333, about 1,000 light-years away. At that estimated distance, the field of view is about 50 light-years across. Next to NGC 1333 is the reddish glow of shocked hydrogen gas created by energetic jets and winds from stars in the process of formation. Other reflection nebulae are scattered around, along with remarkable dark dust nebulae. Near the edge of a large molecular cloud, they tend to hide the newly formed stars and young stellar objects or protostars from prying optical telescopes. Collapsing due to self-gravity, the protostars formaround dense cores embedded in the molecular cloud.

12 Sep, 2017. Pillar of light
🛰
"Beam me up, Scotty" has to be one of the best-known lines from the Star Trek universe. The actual line was never spoken exactly like that, apparently, but it's what I kept thinking of when editing this shot tonight. Beaming up from the tree in the middle of the horizon is a pillar of light that extends to the dense galactic core region of the Milky Way. Known at the Zodiacal Light (ZL), it is caused by light from the sun being scattered and reflected off dust particles in the solar system. At this time of year the ZL can be seen in the western sky after sunset in the southern hemisphere and in the eastern sky before sunrise in the northern half of the planet. Six months later those viewing locations and times will be flipped.
💡
When the ZL appears in the east before dawn it is sometimes called the "false dawn" because it can be so bright that it does seem like the sun is starting to brighten the sky. This astronomical feature is only ever seen along the ecliptic, which is the plane of orbit that the sun, moon and planets appear to keep to across the sky. Seeing the ZL means a good chance to see a planet or two and shining just above the tall tree here is the king of the planets, Jupiter. Less prominent is Saturn up in the top third of this photo, on one of the legs of the Galactic Kiwi. The streaks of light in the lower half of the scene are from aircraft making their way between Australia's two largest cities of Sydney and Melbourne. 📷
This is a single photo that was shot with a Canon EOS 6D camera fitted with a Samyang 14mm lens @ f/3.2, in a 25 sec exposure @ ISO 6400.

11 Sep, 2017. Green to blue
🎥
Watch the night sky change from green to blue in this 17-second clip that captures the Milky Way dropping down the western sky at Saddleback Mountain Lookout near Kiama, Australia. My camera clicked off 195 photos over the 90 minutes that the video covers. For most of that time the background sky has a bottle-green tint due to what is known as atmospheric airglow, or just "airglow" for short. 👩🏼‍🎓
About 15 minutes before the last photo the moon rose over the Tasman Sea (behind the camera), bringing the same blue background colour that we see in the daytime. The moon doesn't generate its own light but acts as a reflector of the sun's light to us here on earth. This sunlight is scattered by molecules in the atmosphere via the mechanism of "Rayleigh scattering" just as we see during daylight hours. The moon is an inefficient reflector of sunlight and only bounces back at most 12% of the light that hits it. Even so with a camera set at a high enough ISO to capture the Milky Way's details there's plenty of blue moonlight to be  picked up. There you have it–a sky that goes from green to blue.
✨🔭
As well as the stars and the moonlight there are plenty of other lights zipping around in my little movie, including satellites, meteors, aircraft and a rescue helicopter that flew over the valley between the mountain I was on and the one the Milky Way is heading for.
📷
This video was created from 195 single images that were each shot with a Canon EOS 6D fitted with a Samyang 14mm lens set to f/2.8. The exposure time for each photo was 25 seconds at an ISO of 3200.

08 Sep, 2017. Bamarang falling
🌌
With the sound of possums fighting in the trees behind me, the roar of an occasional passing car and various other night noises I shot this time-lapse of the Milky Way setting over the Bamarang Dam reservoir back in mid-August. This was my first visit to the location and it's one I hope to get back to next Milky Way season. 🤷🏼‍♂️
As with lots of places where I shoot nightscapes this spot provided some wonderful solitude and time for reflection. Often I get asked if I get scared or feel unsafe being at these remote locations on my own. No, I don't. There are too many other things to be fearful about. What kind of things? Running out of battery charge. My lenses fogging up. Me not focussing the camera correctly. The weather closing in. The night's photos looking too much like others that I've shot. Me losing my photo mojo. Falling asleep on the long drive home. That's plenty to worry about just for starters! 👍
There's always something to worry about, if you so desire. What was it Jesus said, though? "Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about its own things. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble".
📷
This time-lapse is made up of 205 single shots that were captured over a period of 1 hour 53 minutes. Each frame was photographed with a Canon EOS 6D MkII, Samyang 14mm @ f/2.8, 30 sec @ ISO 6400.

05 Sep, 2017. Straight but bent
😱
[Visit fb.com/nightscapades for a wider-cropped version]
💡📷
This panorama is made up from 45 photos, shot in three rows of 15 frames each. It shows the Milky Way arching over the western sky on the Toolijooa Road near Kiama, Australia. The TIFF file that the stitching software created came in at 1.72GB and measures 25,281 x 11978 pixels. The foreground’s brightness is due to light pollution coming from the cities of Sydney, Wollongong and Kiama on the right and the city of Nowra on the left.
🤷🏼‍♂️👩🏼‍🎓
Recently a friend from my high school days (yes, the 70s and 80s did exist) commented on one of my posts and asked why the band of the Milky Way looks bent in images like this. That was a question I asked and wanted an answer for myself about four years ago when I started looking at nightscape images. Not only is the Milky Way's almost straight stretch of stars across the sky bent into an arc in this panoramic photo but the road is as well. It sort of looks like you're standing at a junction and looking down the two forks of the road when in fact It's one straight piece of bitumen. 🌌
This warping is caused by the same thing that faces mapmakers when they try to represent a spherical surface (i.e. the Earth) on a flat map projection. Somewhere along the line something has to give way and let its actual shape be warped into another so that you can show it on a flat surface. To be able to show the view of over 180 degrees that this image covers the straight lines at the top and bottom of the photo are curved. For whatever reason our brains are OK with a horizon that looks normal (i.e. it's horizontal) even if other lines are bent. I could have warped the image so that the Milky Way was a straight band of stars but then the horizon would have been curved like a big smiley mouth.
📷
Each of the 45 shots was taken with Canon EOS 6D, Rokinon 24mm @ f/2.4, 15 sec @ ISO 6400.

04 Sep, 2017. Gateway to the galaxies
🙏👊
As always, folks, I appreciate all of the Likes, comments and referrals that you keep giving to my posts as well as each new follower who joins up to my feed. I've been a bit stuck for new content of late, especially stuff that's different to the usual, so hang in there and don't lose interest, please!
🌌
Tonight I take you back to those galactic siblings of the Southern Hemisphere, the Magellanic Clouds. At many southern latitudes the Clouds are circumpolar, which means that they never go below the horizon. At the South Pole, where the South Celestial Pole is directly overhead, these two orbs would circle at 21 degrees out from the zenith and 18 degrees out (for the Large and Small, respectively). 💡🤷🏼‍♂️
Sometimes I wonder what it would be like to be on a planet orbiting one of the many stars in these two galaxies and look up to see the Milky Way dominating the sky. It would be cloud-like, I assume, but much bigger and brighter than these two little fuzzy patches that we get to see in Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, South American countries and all places at similar latitudes.

These trees are so different than those in the western U.S. but are amazing in their own way. They can live in such sandy, salty soil and grow to amazing heights even when we get tropical storm and hurricane force winds. This is just an amazing view of our trees on the Forgotten Coast silhouetted by the Stars and Galaxies.

03 Sep, 2017. Rotating and reflecting
💫🌙🌞✨
As our little ball of rock in space rotates on its axis the sun and moon, stars, planets and everything else up there seem to rise in the east move across the sky and then set in the west. Well, not quite all of them do that. Some objects are what are known as circumpolar. These objects don’t actually rise and set but appear to rotate around either of the two celestial poles through the course of the night.
☄️
As well as these predictable sky-bound lights the night also brings fleeting flashes of fluorescence in the form of meteors. Vapourising in our atmosphere is an instant these objects–most only sand-sized fragments–emit enough light to catch our eye and so show up as trails on photographs. I have set this video to pause each time one of these little lights bursts into death.

01 Sep, 2017. Rings and streaks of colour and light
🚐
I guess he just wanted to get in on the act, the driver of the 4WD who sped through the area where I had my camera set up taking shots to make up this star-trails image. He didn’t have any idea that his car was to appear in my photo, he was simply driving along this road that skirts the Bamarang Dam near Nowra, Australia. I know this because after he passed through he stopped the car, turned it around and came back to see what I was doing.
🚔
“I hope you’re not setting up a police speed camera,” he joked. After I told him what it was I was up to and showed him some of the photos I’d already gotten he headed back off into the night. The LED bank on his front bumper gave me some good foreground lighting, at least. 💫
If you spend even just a little time looking at this photo you can see the different colours of the stars. For the most part when we look up at the night sky the stars seem to be white, with a few yellowish pinpricks of light here and there. That’s because in low light our eyes aren’t very good at seeing colours and revert to almost seeing just black-and-white. It’s cool that we can use a camera to let us see the wonderful colours up there above us.

This star-trails image is made up from 205 single images that were shot over a period of just under two hours. Each individual photo was captured with Canon EOS 6D MkII, Samyang 14mm @ f/2.8, 30 sec @ ISO 6400.

"Blaine Basin"
Mount Sneffels is one of those majestic mountains that is often photographed, painted and dreamed of. This night I was able to camp just outside of Blaine Basin and under the shadow of this great mountain. It was definitely a hike to get up there with all my equipment but totally worth it and wish I was there now. The San Juan Mountains are one beautiful place!

31 Aug, 2017. Similar but different
🌌
If you look back through my Instagram feed you’ll see plenty of pictures of the Milky Way’s core region that I’ve posted over the past few years, with many of them being “close-ups” like this one. That whole idea of a close-up seems strange when you’re photographing a region of space that’s around 27,000 light-years away, but shots like today’s are less wide-angle than my panorama shots so seem to qualify for that term.
⌛️
What’s different about today’s one from the others? This one was shot with the camera tracking the movement of the stars across the sky that comes from the earth rotating on its axis. I used a 50mm lens with a 30 second exposure whereas I’d normally only shoot for maximum of 10 seconds with that lens if the camera wasn’t moving to follow the stars. A 30 second exposure with that lens would normally show the stars not as points of light but as little light trails. You would also not pick up the fine detail of the gas clouds and dust lanes that are particularly dense in this region of space. 💫
Down in the lower third of the shot there is a grouping of stars with colourful gas clouds around them. This is known as the “Rho Ophiuchi Cloud Complex and is a region where new stars are being formed. It’s a beautiful sight in photos taken with much better equipment and longer exposures.
📷
My photo is made up of two overlapping images that have been stitched together. I left them uncropped to show as much of the dust lanes on the right as possible. Both shots were captured with Canon EOS 6D MkII, a Canon 50mm lens at an aperture of f/3.2, and an ISO setting of 6400.

30 Aug, 2017. In orbit over down under
😴 🛰
In the very wee small hours of Saturday, 19th August, I was on my way back to Sydney after photographing the Milky Way setting over the Bamarang Dam. That’s wee small hours like 4:48am, when I took the first of seven photos of the International Space Station passing over the opening to the Minnamurra River in southeastern Australia. The moon had risen and even though it was only 6% illuminated that was enough to light up the scene for me. 🌙 💫
Following the moon up the eastern sky was the planet Venus, showing here as a slight but bright streak just over the top right of Stack Island. Not too long after this the astronauts on the ISS would have seen the sun rise, something that happens for them roughly every ninety minutes. Out on the horizon is the light trail of a cargo ship that was moving down the coast carrying a load of who-knows-what to who-knows-where.
📷
This single image is a composite of seven original shots, each of which captured 13 seconds of movement of the ISS across the sky. I used the free software “StarStaX” to overlay the seven photos and then filled in gaps in the ISS’ trail using Photoshop. The original photos were captured with Canon EOS 6D, Rokinon 24mm @ f/2.4, 13 sec @ ISO 3200.

"Best Friends
When this guy came into my life sometime in the early 80's we became inseparable. It's amazing how you look at your childhood friends.  It wasn't until we both joined the military and went are separate ways in this world did we not see each other. But earlier this month and 30+ years later with kids , wives and responsibilities do we find the time to hang out again. What's even better we did it in our home town of Montrose. I sure enjoyed the hike and showing my hobbies to an old friend.

Pongo una de mis mejores astrofotos realizada con una cámara réflex (Canon 600D), en este caso del planeta Júpiter con dos lunas que en ese momento estaban visibles, Ío y Calisto. Y la gran mancha roja (la Tierra 🌍 cabría dentro).
Hoy en día las réflex se han convertido en unas todo terreno incluso en astronomía, rindiendo muy bien en fotografía planetaria y cielo profundo, aunque no sean su punto fuerte. 
En este caso ha sido utilizar el telescopio como teleobjetivo, acoplando la cámara en el portaocular 📷🔭. @youresa

29 Aug, 2017. Over waters to the west
🚙👌🏻
After first visiting this location just a week prior I returned to the bushland area near the Bamarang Dam on the south coast of New South Wales, Australia, last Saturday, 26th August. Although I’d been out late the previous night I couldn’t let another cloudless weekend evening go begging so made the 170km (105mi) drive from Sydney once again. The moon had dipped below the western horizon not long before I set up to shoot this panoramic image and once its glow had subsided from the sky I checked my tripod and panoramic head to make sure they were aligned properly then started clicking away. The two fuzzy “clouds” about 1/4 in from the left are the Magellanic Clouds, which are satellite galaxies of our Milky Way, the galaxy you see stretching across the right side of the photo. That makes this a three-galaxy image.
😱
Although I knew I was the only person out and about–apart from the 4WD vehicles that went speeding past with their ultra high-beam LED banks turned on–I still let out a fearful noise when I heard a sneeze only a few metres away. It sounded very human but happily turned out to be a wombat that had been foraging near the roadside. These guys can grow to be as long as 1 metre (about 3 feet) and have a maximum weight of around 35kg (77 pounds). They are herbivores so I didn’t need to fear being eaten but they have been known to charge and knock over humans and do sometimes bite! The sneezing one near me headed off without giving me or my tripod any trouble. 📷
This is a cropped-down version of a stitched panorama made up from 30 original shots. Each of those images was captured with Canon EOS 6D, Rokinon 24mm @ f/2.4, 15 sec @ ISO 6400.

27 Aug, 2017. Sometimes any tripod will do
🚙 💨 ☁️
On Friday night I made another trek south of the light-pollution megaplex that is the cites of Sydney and Wollongong, here in my state of New South Wales, Australia. Although it was clear of clouds all the way down–some 170 km of driving (105mi)–pretty much as soon as I arrived at the spot I’d chosen I could see clouds off to the southwest. To see which way they were moving I shot off a number of photos in succession and rather than put the camera onto its tripod I simply rested it on the roof of my car and took the shots. As I feared, the clouds were coming towards me. While I had the camera sitting there I pointed it towards the Milky Way’s core and got this shot plus a couple of others. About ten minutes later the whole area was clouded out.
🌌
The “Galactic Kiwi” is in the centre of the image and the planet Saturn is a bright spot on what looks like the kiwi’s left leg. Trains of dark gas that seem to run down and left from the kiwi stop near the orange star Antares and the nearby Rho Ophiuchi star-forming region. Did you notice that the background sky colour isn’t black but rather has a strong deep green tint? This is from what’s known as atmospheric airglow and this phenomenon can also appear in orange and a number of other colours. Human eyes don’t see colour in low light so when we look at the night sky we don’t detect the airglow’s tint and our eyes and brain work together to tell us that the sky is black. 📷

Human eyes don’t see colour in low light so when we look at the night sky we don’t detect the airglow’s tint and our eyes and brain work together to tell us that the sky is black. 📷 This is a single image shot with Canon EOS 6D, Rokinon 24mm @ f/2.4, 15 sec @ ISO 6400.
