What an incredible night!
It had been so long since getting a break in the weather to shoot some stars.
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.
