Repost By skypointer2000: "The Magic of Night"

As the core season is drawing to an end, it is time to start working on my processing backlog. This also lets me revisit some of the stunning places I had the privilege to photograph this year.

I have been doing night photography for 3 years now, but I have not spent many nights in more remote places than this. Dozens of miles away from civilisation, the sky is incredibly dark and, while beeing the only human soul far and wide might give some poeple the creeps, it makes me focused and helps me connect to the universe in a way I cannot do when I have company.
Who needs dreams, when he can get such views in reality?

• ...I laughed and shook his hand
And made my way back home
I searched for form and land
For years and years I roamed
I gazed a gazeless stare
We walked a million hills
I must have died alone
A long, long time ago... •

「銀杏夜会」

黄色の季節
また会いにきたよ

ここ日南町の
旧日野上小学校(ひのかみ)

校庭の真ん中にぽつんと
まるんこでポテっとした銀杏

そして今年も忙しなく動き回る
黄色いTシャツの銀杏守さん
お客さまひとりひとりに
やさしく声をかけてまわりなる

夜の帳がおりて冷え込みが一段と増すと
丁寧に包まれた焼きいもや
熱々のお味噌汁でのおもてなし

ここに来てから
ありがとうを何回言っただろう
たくさんの笑顔と
笑い声に包まれた場所

素敵な時間を
本当にありがとう

今度は
真っ白の季節
また会いにくるね🙂

constellation.cube … for sale?
*
Having worked so many months on this project and just being curious about how many people would be seriously interested in having one of these objects - and despite the fact that the custom-made-light-base-side-project is not finished yet (I’m still refining the design and material and, what’s more important, I cannot just sell an electric device I’ve put together by myself without all that regulation stuff etc.) - I’ve come to the point of utmost impatience regarding a simple question:
Who wants one?
I’m going to order at least ten of them, which are already as good as reserved or will be passed as a gift, for about 30Euro/piece. If I should find more prospects, the price per piece would drop a bit - the more the better.
I’m not going to make any profit for now. As I said, I’m only curious. I’d only charge the purchase price plus packing and shipping. Consider it a collective order, me being the organiser.
You’d have to use some other light-base until mine is available (which I cannot guarantee, but I’m spending hard work and time on it, promise). I’d recommend one with as many LEDs and as bright as possible, the cube should be illuminated over the whole expanse.
Please let me know if you’re really interested. It’s not an order, I just want to sound out. *
What is the constellation.cube?
It’s a 50x50x50mm crystal cube with a laser-engraved constellation of Orion (and more - about 200 stars in total). The relative positions of the stars are not 100% scientifically correct, however very close and painstakingly designed by hand, which means that you can behold the constellation from any possible visual angle (we’re so limited here on earth…). I‘ve added a stereo photo of the cube for the ones gifted with cross-eyes, but trust me - IT LOOKS SO MUCH COOLER IN REAL! :D
Any questions? Ask me, I’m eagerly awaiting your thoughts.
Thank you! *

"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 Arcturus 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.

N I G H T S C A P E R • Photo Award to ...

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 with lens cap, change aperture 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!

13 Nov 2018. Orion in the East
🧭
Today's photo shows how the constellation of Orion looks as it rises in the east down here in the Southern Hemisphere. Even on your phone’s screen, you should be able to make out the hazy purplish area that is the Orion Nebula, also known as M42. It’s about 1/4 down from the top edge of my shot and a little left of the centreline. The nebula is visible with the naked eye in dark skies, and even in some areas with a moderate amount of light pollution. With a diameter of around 24 light-years, this beautiful object has been observed to be a star-forming region, and at 1340-odd light-years from Earth, it is the closest such “stellar nursery” yet seen.
☀️✨🌟
Further left and just below halfway down the frame you can see the orange “supergiant” star Betelgeuse. Why the designation of “supergiant”? Based on astronomical observations, Betelgeuse is so massive that if it was placed in the centre of our Solar System, its outer surface would be found near Jupiter. Yeah, that's big! 💡
The red lights marking the locations of wind turbines add some extra colour to the photo. Although I could have cloned out the black streaks of the powerlines that follow the nearby roadway, I opted to leave them in because they were there on the night. 📷
This photo is a single-frame image that I shot with a Canon EOS 6D Mk II camera, through a Canon 40mm lens @ f/2.8, using a 10-second shutter speed @ ISO 12,800.

Northern star trails. This is a stack of 314 exposures with layers set to Lighten in Photoshop. Anyone else hear Interstellar movie quotes when seeing this? "CASE, get ready to match our spin with the retro thrusters."⠀

Earthshine - I’ve been wanting to try this out for a while. The pictures always look so cool. I spent a lot of time editing this. Maybe too much. I think the photoshop document was around 4GB by the time I finished. I wanted to try a little HDR style.I started out by putting a Nikkor 500mm lens on my Sony A6500 with two adapters giving me a 750mm focal length. The illuminated side of the moon was simple. Just did a few exposures until I nailed the focus. It was lower on the horizon so it had a little orange hue to it that I boosted a bit in post. Tricky part was exposing the shadow portion. I had to shoot exposures at 1/5th of a second and had to really boost the ISO. Reason for this was that the camera was on a tripod and I couldn’t expose for much longer since the moon was moving and due to weight limitations of my tracker the camera was stationary. I didn’t care at the time because I figured I could stack to get rid of the noise. I did not realize that the noise would be so strong that it would inhibit Photoshop’s ability to auto align. I had to use some stars behind the moon and manually aligned 20 images to stack. Once that was complete and the noise was removed I wanted to get a little creative, so I brought in the other exposure to put over the blown out portion of the moon. And decided to add some star bokeh from a photo I took the other night. Little bit more photoshopped than my usual stuff but I enjoyed the experience. I plan on posting the more natural looking photos soon. I will post in my stories the noise reduction comparison. •
