We drove the 9 hours to Acadia National Park for the weekend (planned around the new moon) and the weather all week called for full cloud cover and a little rain on Saturday (end of April). We got in late Friday night to a blanket of fog, set up camp and went to bed. The Milky Way gods granted a seemingly improbable wish and gave us 0% cloud cover for Saturday night (only clear night in two weeks) and after a quick two hour nap we headed to Sand Beach to shoot and were not disappointed.
This is four exposures at ISO 1600, f1.8, and at 18mm on a crop sensor Nikon with the Sigma Art 18-35 1.8. One shot included a little headlamp painting on the foreground for the beach/waves.

Mobius Arch, Alabama Hills, California. Congratulations to Matthew Newman Photography. “I captured this single exposure selfie a year ago (May 13, 2016),” says Matt. || Please show support to our guest artists by visiting their IG gallery.

Quoting Matt: I arrived in the Alabama Hills around sunset. To my surprise, Mobius Arch was much smaller than I had in my mind. One of the things that has become a big part of my night photography is taking the time to capture myself in the locations to record the time I was there, generally alone, shooting the night sky. It began as a way to capture memories, then realized it was a great way to show the scale of these nightscape scenes.
-
To my amazement the arch opening was only about five foot, ten inches, I'm six foot, one. To capture this shot, I setup a headlamp directly next to my camera on its dimmest setting. The light wasn't pointed at the arch, but pointed straight up into the sky as to only cast the slightest bit of ambient light on the scene. I then set my intervalometer as if I were shooting a time lapse so I could get into position and also try a few different poses along the way. I would listen for the click of my shutter then hold still for thirty seconds.

EXIF: Single exposure • Canon 6D • Rokinon 14mm • ISO 6400 • f/2.8 • 30 seconds • RAW file processed in Lightroom, no Photoshop .

TRACKED | BLEND | PANO

This was my first time trying a tracker, the iOptron. I was very surprised at the result, as I didn't even align it to Polaris, as I couldn't even find the star through the polar scope. Oh well, a lot to learn for sure!

Anyway, this is a image taken on a backpacking trip I took this weekend, taken at around 9000 feet at 11 pm. Lucky the weather was good last night, and so I hiked up on a mountain to take this. I have to say my backpacking pack is getting really heavy with all this gear, plus tracker! LOL

Nikon D750, Nikon 50mm f/1.4G
Sky is a 4 shot panorama, f/2.8, ISO 2000, shutter 1 minute
Foreground is the same, but without the tracker on.
My Instagram is @thelightninja if you're interested!

Do not let your difficulties fill you with anxiety, after all it is only in the darkest nights that stars shine more brightly.

#visitbartogay. Мы обсуждали всевозможные темы, но думаю именно эти были самыми интересными:
1. Почему народ Казахстана так беден, когда сам Казахстан так богат?!
2. Лучший женский возраст - 18?
3. В каком возрасте лучше рожать?
4. Состояние здоровья в 18 и в 30?
5. Почему девушки требуют чесности от парней, когда сами уже в начале отношений обманывают своим makeup-прической-ресницами-бровями и т.д.?
6. Почему еда на природе вкуснее?
🔴Если вас тоже беспокоят или беспокоили данные вопросы, можете выложить своё мнение в комментах.
🌠На фото вы можете наблюдать хвост Млечного Пути над нашими палатками и местом костра.
🏕Мы легли спать после 12 ночи. Из палаток было отлично видно звёздное небо. Я просто лежал и не мог заснуть. Кто то считает баранов, а я считал звёзды. #visitcosmos

There are no secrets to success. It is the result of preparation, hard work, and learning from failure 🌌

Today was one of the raddest in a while. Got to live a dream and canyon into a packraft exit. Super thankful for @abbihearne putting up with my less than orthodox ways. Also here's a night shot. Good times. I am v sun burned. Sry mom. Scope my story for the trek!

Wow, so many things went right with this one. I got to use several new advanced techniques, and apps that really helped put this one together. .

Short timelapse for your Tuesday scroll down the Instagram street.
The reason why this is so short is because it was really dark and I heard what seemed like a large-ish animal moving towards me from below the underbrush 😳😨🏃🏻🐅

“Urbex Galaxy”

Here is another one from the epic weekend I had in Galveston in the beginning of this month.  When I found out you can see the Milkyway on Galveston Island and when @andresdelr.io climbed up on top of the abandoned train.
So of course melding those two happenings together only seemed appropriate!  That said, here is “Urbex Galaxy” another composite featuring The West End of the Seawall Milkyway View and the abandoned train tucked away on the bayside of the island.  2 shots 100% G-Town!  Enjoy and visit indiedirk.com to view this image larger (link in bio) :)

Local artist Jason Sanchez paints a galaxy mural in the front hallway of Ramsey Magnet School of Science last week. Sanchez, a disabled veteran, has been spending several hours each weeknight since mid-April to complete the solar system mural at no cost to his childhood school. He plans to have it done in early June. (Photo by @benwawa5) #cdapress #coeurdalene #idaho #photography #art #artist #milkywaygalaxy #mural #eclipse

As the city grows, human activities extend and light pollution spreads, a rapidly increasing population are losing their night skies and chances watching the beautiful Milky Way. It's about the time to rise public awareness and save our night starry skies, for us, and for the next generations, as well.

Tauranga is where I started my Astrophotography journey and it has been an awesome one. 5 years ago when I first started I thought mount was a good place to take photos of the milkyway but with lack of technical details it was hard to get decent shots.

Zooming two years later, I went to the mount again with some more knowledge and I took some amazing photos of the milkyway over the mount. Was happy with the images but the light pollution was a bit too much. So never went back again.

Zooming 2 years later again, @jackburdenimages and I went around the mount to see if it was any interesting and to our surprise it was really amazing, so much so that both of us decided to organise a free beginner workshop at the mount to help other budding photographers catch starlight.
The event is totally free but we will be taking donations of which 100% will go to Tauranga food bank.
Feel free to join us on 2nd June at 6:45pm at the Surf club. Bring you camera, tripod and put some warm clothes on. We will help you with all the information you will need to take good astro photos.
This photo was taken from the mount base track.

The Red Square Nebula, or MWC 922, is found in the night sky near the Serpens constellation. It is a bipolar nebula, which refers to its symmetrical appearance around a central point, and it is one of the best examples of such a nebula that we know of in the universe.
