This is one of 4 shots I took to create a stitched panorama of the Milky Way. In the foreground, my favourite rock at Hongoeka Bay. Given that I crop everything for Instagram anyway, I decided to edit this one individually. Jupiter can be seen setting over Mana Island. A combination of light pollution and presence of airglow provided a band of colour above the horizon. With me on this occasion, Mr Astro himself... @frankhopfler Check out his page for uncompromising stitched astro panoramas!

It’s ok... I’m ok... Boys will be boys!
If you see the big rock astro shot on the row below this post... this is the same rock captured an hour later. It’s a lot bigger than it looks from a distance with a wide angle lens! You can see the Milky Way is now lower in the sky... Oh and that’s me clinging on for what seemed like an eternity and pointing my headlight in its general direction.
I’d wanted a remote triggered selfie while sitting on top. Alas this was as far as I got, and the prospect of a 6m fall to rocks below was not on my wish list at 3:00am in such a remote location.
Big thanks to @frankhopfler for triggering the shot while I clung by my fingertips for the 13 seconds long exposure. Have you ever tried rock climbing in gumboots? Don’t! 😂⚠️

If you look outside now and see this in the sky....
(A) Brace yourself... We’re in for a hell of a ride!!
(B) I want what you’re On!!
(C) We’re All in serious trouble!!
Shot with @frankhopfler at crazy-o’clock last week. It’s a single shot long exposure inverse zoom of the Milky Way Core.... translated to mean... It took a few attempts to get my zooming speed and consistency right. Any pauses or changes in speed resulted in patchy uneven streaks.
My technique for this involved zooming for only half the duration of the exposure. This allowed the primary image of the Core to retain its original shape without total distortion, hence also the reason for zooming out rather than in.
Stay safe people! Warping is frowned upon in some parts of the world 😉💥

The planets are aligned through July night skies over New Zealand! We’re currently enjoying some of the best inter-planetary views in over 20 years.
Captured at 02:05am on Wednesday morning with @frankhopfler as we walked around to Hongoeka Bay from Plimmerton. This is 3 sequentially shot images all with identical settings and stacked as one for clarity.
In view, the Galactic Core of the Milky Way spanning across the Western horizon. Jupiter is shining brightly just above Mana Island. This photo is rather special in that it also has Saturn in frame.
Can you see the Galactic Kiwi within the Core? Saturn is the bright planet located just above the centre of the Kiwi’s back. Mars was also clearly visible this night, but out to the right and above this frame.
Huge thanks to our astro guru friend @markgeenz for his assistance with identifying and locating these planets. For the best of astro photography, check out his page @theartofnight ==========================

The Boathouse by @novakmiddleton was designed as a retreat that could be utilised by the owner’s family and friends, reflecting their passion for the local area and surrounding landscape. See more at archipro.co.nz.

Another moonless sky over Hongoeka Bay captured last July. Milky Way core setting beyond Mana Island... a strong presence of Airglow, and some reflective goodness in the lagoon I was standing in. This was shot at 3:10am an hour earlier than my last astro post from this location

Most moonless nights this season have been lost to heavy cloud cover or rain. So here’s a Moonless sky over Hongoeka Bay captured last July. Milky Way core setting beyond Mana Island... a strong presence of Airglow, and some reflective goodness in the lagoon I was standing in. A previously unopened frame I’ve left until now to open. Ooh it’s like opening presents 😂🎁✨

How beautiful is our Southern night sky??!! It was a cold clear night toward the end of July as @rakairoahori and I made our way around the southwest coast. The sky was incredibly bright from the light of a myriad stars over Hongoeka Bay. Colourful bands of pink and apricot tones lay just above the horizon. This optical phenomenon was airglow. It’s caused by various processes in the upper atmosphere, like the recombination of atoms, photoionized by the sun during the day. Other causes include luminescence from cosmic rays striking the upper atmosphere etc. It was 02:38am and the Milky Way Core was already quite low in the sky. Our astro adventure was off to a great start! The foreground boulder was a timely bonus. You can even see Mana Island on the horizon just beyond the rock. ==========================

Had an amazing and extremely valuable weekend at Hongoeka Marae learning about the relationship between iwi and the museum and heritage sector. The view wasn't too bad either! Thank you for the hospitality Ngāti Toa! (We're taking Aunty Grace and her scones with us, sorry)

I've been posting a few shots from Mana Island this week. This one here is taken from Hongoeka Bay on the mainland, looking out at Mana Island. On this occasion there was an abundance of airglow and surreal colour streaks visible to the naked eye. I had waded out into the receding tide and shallow pools left behind in order to catch some star reflections. ==============================

Tender calves meant aquajogging and bike rides for the past two days. I was able to appreciate the views a bit more but was kept honest lacking no intensity or speed. Having a jelly quads morning.
