I m delighted to have been shortlisted for the return of the DIAS Irish Astrophotography competition. I only managed one night shoot in Ireland last year, so I m very happy that that shot has made the cut in the "Back On Earth" category. https://www.dias.ie/2022/03/03/diass-astrophotography-competition-returns-for-a-second-year/
Another from the Samuel Boardman Highway Oregon, April 2021. This was a stacked and tracked Sky blended with a 4min foreground exposure.
Lost Lake, Mount Hood and the Milky Way June 2021 Oregon USA. Another of the Milky Way shots that will be soon available or purchase.
I have had a few nights out shooting the Milky Way this year. These pictures will soon be added to the DSLR prints available for sale, but I m posting some here to give an idea of what is to come. This is Natural Bridges in Oregon taken back in April.
As part of the Dark Skies Heritage Week in Ireland, I was asked to give a talk on DSLR Astrophotography. This lecture was recorded and is now on you tube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lPZlK5VP1yQ&t=1276s I should point out that at 21:10 I said that going from f1.4 to f/4 is 4 stops. This is actually 3 stops, and the ISO needed to go to, to make up for the small aperture would be 6400, not 3200 that I mention.
