"A Perfect Night"

Capturing the Milky Way over Mt. Rainier was one of my main missions during my August trip to the PNW.

While scouting Sunrise Point in the afternoon, I was a bit worried, as there conditions were very smoky…

Luckily, the smoke seemed to affect the scene less at night, when the view of Mt. Rainier was surprisingly clear. The Milky Way core with the setting Antares region, flanked by Jupiter on the far right and bright Mars on the left, were all nicely visible. As a special treat, an early Perseid appeared at just the right time and place…

You cannot ask for much better conditions.

Photo by Ralf Rohner Sky Pointer 📸 : TRACKED / STACKED / BLEND "Desert Castle"
Another image from my June trip to the southwestern US. This one was taken in a very remote place in northern Arizona.
I was told by a friend that I would not see a human soul within miles of this place and he was right. The only sign of living beeings, apart from some old tire tracks, was the howling of coyotes.
Spending a night alone in a remote place is always something special. I am very focused while shooting and this makes all my senses extremely sensitive, which in combination with the deep silence and the incredibly dark skies makes for a very meditative and peaceful experience that can be extremely addictive.

One of my favorite parts of fieldwork is you. I get to meet amazing people. #HuntingtonBeach was no different, on the marsh boardwalk I met a lively quartet. Their smiles were brighter than the setting sun; I enjoyed chatting with these two couples. I bumped into them again as I headed to the beach to photograph the moonless night sky. Richard, the photo enthusiast of the group, pondered what there was for me to be photographing at night on the beach. On the east coast, the milky way is harder to see due to the light pollution however with a bit of luck and knowledge it can be found. This one is for you Richard, the milky way over the lights of Litchfield by the Sea

SINGLE EXPOSURES: Frosted Leaf Galaxy > Dandelion galaxy > Milky Way Lilium japonicum (SWIPE left to see all 3). Which one do you like best? Congratulations to Masahiro Miyasaka. YES, these are all single exposures! Read the TECHNIQUE below to learn how to get this much DOF in only one exposure.
-
MORE from Royce: I first discovered Masahiro’s amazing work back in 2010 when this leaf photo appeared on the @nasa_apod for 2010 Nov 17.
-
TECHNIQUE & EXIF: Single exposure • Canon 5D MarkII • SIGMA 15mm F2.8 EX DG FISHEYE • ISO 4000, F/2.8, 30 sec for sky (using Bulb mode and infinity focus), keep shutter open and quickly cover lens w/ lens cap, change focus to f/22, uncap lens and give additional exposure (about 18 sec) for foreground lit by LED, close shutter.
-
This technique is detailed further (using an electronic flash to light the foreground) on page 111 in my @MilkyWay_NightScapes eBook. To get both the sky and the closeup object in focus (with longer focal length lenses), you will need to focus twice—all during one exposure. Here’s the complete procedure:
-
1. Prefocus for your closeup object and mark it on the lens barrel, then return to your preset infinity mark.
-
2. Set up your strobe above your foreground subject and predetermine your exposure (i.e. using a manual, 1/32 power for f/16 @ ISO 6400).
-
3. Using “bulb” mode, open shutter and expose for sky (i.e. f/2.8, 25 seconds, for ISO 6400).
-
4. With the shutter still open, place the lens cap on the lens, at the end of the night sky exposure (i.e. at the end of 25 seconds). Instead of a lens cap, you can put a black lens bag over the front half of the lens.
-
5. You can now use a dim flashlight to change focus for the closeup object (rotate to preset closeup focus mark), and change to the predetermined strobe aperture (i.e. f/16). Shut off your flashlight.
-
6. Take off lens cap or black bag and fire strobe (I use a radio trigger for the strobe).
-
7. Close the shutter. You’ve now done a two-stage focus stack, all in one exposure!

Our Glowing Home.

Can you believe the number of stars? We're orbiting one star among the 200 billion of our Galaxy, zipping through space at an unfathomable speed!

This was shot immediately after astronomical twilight, when the core of the Milky Way was almost perfectly vertical. It is a three shot pano, with a 24mm lens at f/2. Each frame of the pano is a stack of 8x15s exposures stacked in DSS and processed in Photoshop.

Autumn in the Night Sky.

What comes to mind when you think of autumn? The cold scent of winter on the wind? Endless hot cups of chai? Golden forests and carpets of crimson leaves?

In Ladakh, autumn signifies glittering night skies, bitter, freezing winds, that cuts through layered jackets, and the occasional howl of a distant Tibetan wolf. This high altitude desert is a landscape of my dreams. Perched on this ridge, I was treated to the most surreal of sights. The giant arm of the Milky Way, gently set beyond the distant horizon. Wild displays of Airglow lit the sky. Bands of orange and greens, dancing in the night. Autumn colours in the sky!

The Himalayan Chandra Telescope peers into the distant universe, unraveling ancient cosmic mysteries. Green bands of Airglow behind, reflect off it's silver dome.

The Himalayan Chandra Telescope (HCT) is one of the highest altitude telescopes in the world, operated by the Indian Institute of Astrophysics. It takes stunning scientific images using it's giant 2 meter primary mirror. How I wish I could hook my camera up to it, and go crazy.

This image is a stacked, tracked panorama. The panorama consists of three rows, each of two horizontal frames. Each frame is a stack of 4x30s tracked images. This was shot using a old canon film lens. 50mm f/1.4 at f/3.2 at ISO 3200. Stacked in DSS and processed in Photoshop.

Stars through natural framing of “Kal Jenni” canyon (2/3)
Photographing sky in the mysterious canyons of Kal Jenni has been my long dream, and fortunately there were no clouds or light polutions that night. As it turns, the night sky has seasons, too. From about mid-september to mid-april, we are not able to see the galactic center. So I was only able to photograph the tail of Milky Way .

"Rainier Blues"

I try to arrive at my photo spots early, but normally I only start shooting after astronomical dusk, in order to get maximum detail in the sky.

During my visit to Mt. Rainier in August, I was fully set up early and began exposing when the Milky Way started to show through the darkening sky. While capturing the foreground I tried to adapt my exposures to the fast changing light.

While processing this image, I had to adapt my workflow, as the 5 tracked images I captured for stacking, had strong gradients and were far from equally bright.
The final result kind of reminds me of my beginnins in nightscape photography, when I processed my skies very blue. This time however, the sky was really blue - at least until after astronomical nightfall.
Of course I stayed long enough to also capture the scene in my preferred light too - stay tuned.

Old car in Joshua Tree NP, California. Congratulations to Sam King. "I always see crazy talented people posting images of our galaxy with an old car in the foreground, and it's been a bucket list goal of mine to do the same. Well, here we go! It's all downhill from here,” says Sam. || Please show support to our guest artists by visiting their IG gallery.

MORE from Royce: Notice anything strange about Milky Way sky in this image? It’s backwards! I asked Sam about this, and he said: “The sky was shot at Cottonwood Campground and the foreground was at Wall St Mill just after sunset. I flipped the MW by choice because of the light pollution.” Funny thing: Sam received 42 comments on Facebook and IG, and not a single person questioned the MW orientation!

TECHNIQUE & EXIF: Tracked / Stacked / Composite/Blend (“While my camera can’t handle clean single image milky way photos, compositing the sky and foreground really helps me be able to print my stuff.”) • Sony a6000 • Sky: 4 tracked (Skywatcher SA) and median stacked exposures with a Rokinon 12mm f/2.0 @ 360 sec, f/3.5 ISO 640 • Foreground shot with a 50mm just after sunset.

10 Nov 2018. West of winter
👋🌌
We Southern Hemisphere folk farewelled winter last month and have already felt the heat of summer, even before spring is halfway through. Saying goodbye to winter also means bidding adieu to the Milky Way’s gorgeous galactic core. The core is very close to the western horizon here in my photo, shot last Thursday night. 🛰🛰
Shining up from near the galactic centre towards the orange glow of the planet Mars (top right), the Zodiacal Light was very visible to the unaided eye. To the left of Mars are the trails of a pair of satellites in orbit. Warning lights atop wind turbines on the next ridge account for the red dots near the tree. 📷
I captured this single-frame photo using a Canon EOS 6D Mk II camera, fitted with a Samyang 14mm XP lens @ f/4.0, an exposure time of 30 seconds @ ISO 6400.

Starscape.

The stars so bright, they lit the vast mountain vistas. Arching, from horizon to horizon, the majestic band of the milky way slowly sank below the horizon.

This is a stacked panorama. Each frame is a stack of 8x15s exposures at ISO 3200 with a 24mm lens. The sky is a 2x2 horizontal panel panorama, and the foreground is a 2x1 panel panorama. Stacked in sequator and processed in Photoshop.

Taking it back to this magical summer night at the Hualapai Hilltop just hours before our descent into Havasupai. This was also our view on our hike out at night. Being able to see this with the naked eye is such a treat as it's often drowned out by city lights. I would have slept outside under the star that night, but I had a comfy bed waiting for me. #tbt

Bowling Ball Beach, Mendocino, California. Congratulations to Marcin Zając. “These strange spherical boulders on the Mendocino coast in Northern California are revealed only during low tide.

There's at least four conditions that need to be satisfied to make this photo possible. First the right time of year - the galactic core of the Milky Way is only visible during the summer season (April to September). Second is the phase of the moon - around new moon is best so that the light from the moon doesn't wash out the Milky Way. Third - the tide needs to be low otherwise the boulders are completely submerged. Finally the weather - during the summer this area is often engulfed in fog resulting in poor visibility. On Sunday night (September 2) all these factors were favorable so I decided to make the 8 hour long roundtrip from Bay Area.
