I can see the improvements with each post for sure! Shame all I got the one time I tried to photograph the stars was just a black image with some blurry white dots. I need to make it out to the country again some night when it's clear and try again!


I want to die peacefully, in my sleep, like my grandfather.
Not screaming, terrified, like his passengers.

Just remembered I made this thread so I thought I might update it as its been over a year since I last looked at it!...plus I always have a laugh looking at my progression haha

The other night I managed to finally get a photo of the Aurora Australis! The pic is pretty grainy and the Aurora is very dim but I was stoked (even if I don't look it haha) when I checked my camera and saw the faint red/pink glow!

The others are just a few random night shots that I've taken over the last year. Again, as the thread title says, I'm still learning but I'm having an awesome time doing it.
There's definitely something therapeutic about standing/sitting/layin​g around in the dark and being blown away with the night sky!

"a black image with some blurry white dots"
Every one of us did it.
Every one of us will do it again!
You got the mood. Just get out out and as Nike says; "Just Do It".
Cheers and peace.
