Great video and proof that you don't have to be in total darkness to capture the Milkyway. Hence the light on the telescope and the lights off in the distance. Great video!

Red lights are used in astronomy cause your eyes get dark adapted making it easier for you to see your surroundings in the dark . White light destroys your night vision but redlight is easy on the eyes and they stay dark adapted better . When taking long exposures at night the chip of the camera being light sensitive picks up all light available depending the ISO you camera is set to , therefore the white light in the distance may not have been as bright as projected in real life but on images the longer the exposure the more light the camera chip will absorb making even the dimmest light in a distance seem extremely bright . That is one reason why I disagree with images where the photographer thinks turning on headlights of their car or using bright flashlights make a night time image look like a daylight image therefore ruining that image . Natural light is sufficient for night time photography , the longer the exposure the brighter white light gets' . Red light will also do the same thing but not on the same level of brightness . A cameras sensor is very sensitive to red colors , therefore absorbing more red making the light look brighter than normal . The best way you can understand this is get a red flashlight and take it out in the darkest place you can and turn it on keeping it shining downward and see if your eyes can still see the stars very good . Then turn on a White light flashlight and see how much difference there is in comparison . You find that the red light is more comfortable and soothing to the eyesight and not blinding like white light is . Check out this link and see what is says about redlights at night : https://briankoberlein​.com …/08/blinded-by-the-light/ (external link)

Film image from trusty old film camera that old photographers have used in the past . How many here have used film for DSO images ?

Wow.
I seriously have thought of using film for one of my future projects.
My candidate bodies are F1 Canon, F3 Nikon and several Pentax manual old SLRs.
Will see how it goes but I am still not so sure about the choice of film and ISO.

Did you go north or south of Auckland? I was considering Kariotahi last night to try my hand at milky way photos, but it was so cloudy ( I'm in manukau )

fantastic photo by the way!

Here's a couple new ones of mine from last night. The first is with the Samyang 14/2.8. The second one is a 7-shot Pano with the Sigma 35 Art.
