First imaging session in like over 4 months (with the bushfires and now rain/storm in Australia the last few months clear nights are hard to come by); had a brief few hours of clear skies the last couple of nights.

Roughly 3 hours total imaging time shot in suburban Bortle 5 sky:

Outstanding! This is the shot I was hoping for about 0400 yesterday morning. Fog coming in off the water killed the session before I could even get set up. Could you share your workflow for this?


Panasonic G9, Panaleica 100-400, Samyang 12mm F2 NCS CS, 7Artisans 7.5mm f2.8 fisheye, Panagor 90mm f2.8 Macro (OM), Canon 200mm f4 Macro FD, Sigma APO 2x DG EX TC, Tiffen aXent ND 3.0 (ND1000) filter, Olympus OMD E-M5, Oly 14-42mm, Oly 12-50mm, ZEQ25gt Mount, plus a few other lenses, extension tubes, and general mish-mash

Hey mate, I can't fully remember what I did there but pretty sure it was one single 2 minute exposure on tracker with 50mm lens which I stretched out in Lightroom before moving to Photoshop to do star size reduction cheers.
