      Its been a verly long time since we had an astro photography throwdown.

      I posted this in trees as well so yes it is a repeat though this throw down was my original plan for it.
      Shot deep in the pine forest of the bighorn mountains between the tree tops at around 9000 feet there was no light pollution and a crystal clear night,this was only¬† a 15 second exposure and I still managed to catch 5 meteorites and there wasn’t even a meterorite storm. The brightest object in the upper center is the international space station. The colors were very vibrant up there and could clearly be seen with the naked eye.

      Nice! A reminder of how insignificant we are!

      Went to Sutherland 3 weeks ago. Sutherland is home of the largest single optical telescope in the southern hemisphere (SALT) and among the largest in the world.¬† We slept over on a farm and the owner had a huge telescope for the guest’s use. Unfortunately it was full moon so our timing was horribly wrong as far as star gazing is concerned. So I did the 2nd best thing – got out my D600 and Tamron 150-600 G2…

        Nice Tobie, can you photograph through the telescope there?

      Less than ideal conditions but gave it a go anyway.

      Tobie this one was taken at almost full moon in the Yucatan Mexico. I find the different viewing angle, from there to where you are, interesting.

        Nice Detail Rob, I almost prefer a little shadow versus a full moon. Like the two above as well.

      January 2018’s Super Moon. Shot with a 1000mm rusian military lens supposedly removed from a 70’s spy plane.
