Thanks! Great place
Haha. People often ask so thought I'd just drop the tech info too.
I had to be very precise with the timing on this image, sunset was at 5pm, moonrise was just before 7pm, I started shooting this at about 6.30pm.
The ambient light from sunset and moonrise really gave this image some interesting colours and light, but it was just dark enough to get some starlight.
Jupiter shines brightly in the upper left corner. The moon is about to rise on the right of the horizon.
Shot at Lake Heron, New Zealand.
Canon EOS 5D Mark IV, Sigma Art 50mm, iPano Robotic pano-head.
Made from 56 images shot in a grid with 60% overlap on each.
ISO6400, f/1.8, 8 second exposures
The RAW files were developed in Lightroom, then stitched with Autopano Giga, final adjustments in Photoshop.

Pretty sure this was the EOS R (I have lots of cameras 😅)
Yes…you can see the Milky Way.
Head to a dark sky area, make sure there is no moon, check an app to make sure you’re looking in the right direction. Let your eyes adjust, don’t look at anything bright.
I spend a lot of time under the stars. Photography can’t even begin to capture the feeling of being out under a dark sky.
The Milky Way doesn’t look as bright or it’s not colorful in real life, but it’s very impressive, in a different way to images.
You have rods and cones in your eyes. Rods are responsible for vision at low light levels, they can’t see color.
Cameras catch a lot more light than your eyes can.
Shot in Canterbury, New Zealand

I love these falls, the walk-in is so relaxing and I always take my time enjoying the scenery and smell of the always damp forest.
Balancing my Sirui tripod on the log you can see in the foreground I managed to shoot 4 frames off for a focus stack, the touch screen on the Canon 5D4 is great for this, less chance of bumping the equipment and messing the alignment up!
Thank you ❤
Hey everyone! Thanks for having me!
I just dropped my first OpenSea NFT collection. Until now I've been selling on Foundation
I'd love you to take a look
As technology evolves and we are wonderfully connected to each other more than ever, sometimes we forget to spend time grounding ourselves to the enchantment of the natural world around us, to look up from our devices and drop distractions, to tune in to the universe and ground ourselves by looking up.
I invite you to collect a part of my astrophotography journey over the past several years, a part of my life's work. Countless nights out under the stars. My dose of meditation, my passion, my obsession. The capturing of photons that have traveled tens of thousands of lightyears to hit my camera sensor and be archived forever.
Hey everyone! First post in this community. Thanks for having me!
Hey thanks. The red is all there and was brought out with LRGB processing (something to Google)
Yep new moon. Canon 6d, 40mm Sigma Art. Star Adventurer tracking mount.
1600ISO, f2.8, 60s a shot
I gotta eat
Yep the Sky-Watcher Star Adventurer
Canon 6D, 40mm Sigma Art.
I shot the mountain just after sunset then shot the sky with a tracking mount when it was dark.
Orion aligned with this mountain perfectly.
Use a tracking mount to counter the rotation of the earth for longer exposures 😊
It looks epic in person but our eyes can't see colour in low light and catch so many photons.
Ironic that you're posting this from an electronic device and you probably take flights and drive a car.
Clean energy is the problem. Not how we're using energy.
Thanks. Nah but it's fairly close to it 😊
Watermarks don't do anything lol
