Rising Eta Carina

Taken a while ago.

Static landscape and 8 x 30 seconds tracked sky shots.

EOSR(a) and Fornax Lightrack 2 mount at my dark site observatory looking towards Canberra (the yellow light glow).

excellent Greg, you've handled skyglow and colour very well indeed, very atmospheric framing. I like the blue flash to the right, intriguing.

Thanks Fred.

That blue flash is a car coming up a windy road down from where I am maybe 1 kilometre or less.

Greg, very nice. You have got quite a lot of nice detail with natural light, which I like a lot.

Thanks Phil.

This is taken about 10 metres from my front door at my dark site. Its quite scenic and I have spent many an hour out there taking nightscapes and enjoying the dark sky starry view.

I am hoping to see a huge fireball one night. I missed one once as I was looking the other way but it lit up the sky and made me cast a shadow. But it was brief.

Greg.

Great image Greg. It reminds me of the rolling hills of WA here.

Thanks Dave. Yes its quite hilly at my dark site. I've only been to Perth once and was impressed by it.
