L A S T | C H A S E . Trying to capture the last view of the milky way. Windy and a bit cold with clouds thwarting the view the Milky Way shot eluded me. See you again next year. Making the most of a trip out to the coast I walked away with 4-5 shots that turned out ok. . . . #astrophotography #universetoday #milkyway #astrophoto #astrography #nightsky #nightscaper #starphotography #starscape #longexpo_additction #awesomeearth #milkywaychasers #natgeospace #starrynight #longexposure #astro_photography #thenewmilkyway #milkywaygrams #Ig_shutternights #nightskynz #nikonnz #nightskynz

A S T R O | V A N . My stealth camper under the stars. I had taken all my shots for the evening and decided to see how long the battery would last once set to a timelapse. I got about 2.5h in less than half a battery so and this small shoot was the result. . . . #timelapse #videogram #underthestars #vanlifeproject #astrophotography #universetoday #milkyway #astrophoto #astrography #nightsky #nightscaper #starphotography #starscape #longexpo_additction #awesomeearth #milkywaychasers #natgeospace #starrynight #longexposure #astro_photography #thenewmilkyway #milkywaygrams #Ig_shutternights #nightskynz #nikonnz #nightskynz

Watching the world go round With it forecast for a clear night, I decided to head out on a little mission. I spent nearly 3 hours sat on my folding chair under the stars at this little church literally watching the world go by. Despite it being a half moon I still managed to capture plenty of light from the stars and the moon light was perfect for illuminating my foreground. Hope everyone has an awesome weekend 😊 . . #visitauckland #ourakl  #sonyalphapro #startrails #nightskynz  #thedailycosmos #milkywaychasers #night_shots_ #astro #astrophotography  #nightphotography_exclusive #space #witns #igworldclub_astrophotography #milkyway #ig_milkyway  #purenewzealand #milkywayshooters #universe #nightscaper #skyatnight #astronomus #astronomy #longexpoelite #meteorshower #newzealandguide #nightsky #galactickiwi #milkywaycore

What exactly is the Aurora Australis? We're here to tell you! 😉⁠ ⁠ The Aurora Australis (or the southern lights) is a curtain of light which shimmers across the sky with a diffused glow. It's often green but can sometimes be red and occasionally other colours too.✨⁠ ⁠ These lights are caused by very fast-moving electrons striking atoms in the Earth’s upper atmosphere, primarily oxygen and nitrogen atoms which make up most of our atmosphere. When this happens, it can put these atoms in an excited state. During the process with which they return to their normal state, they emit this excess energy in the form of visible photons.⁠ ⁠ It's always exciting when the conditions are right to see the Aurora Australis around these parts. Have you been lucky enough to see it in person? Tell us about it 👇👇👇⁠ ⁠ ⁠ ⁠ ⁠ ⁠ #stars #stargazing #nz #nightskynz #nightsky #newzealand #internationaldarkskyreserve #internationalspacestation #ISS #explore #darkskyreserve #bestvacations #astrophotographynz #astrophotographytekapo #astrophotographytips #astrophotographylife #astrophotography_space #astrophotographyarchive #astrophotography_ #adventure #auroraaustralis #aurora #aurorahunter #southernlights⁠

I feel like I'm well overdue to post this image. Throw back to June 28th, @alektail and I braved the winter chill and hiked to Tasman lake, Mt Cook National Park for a midnight astro shoot. Our effort was rewarded by perfectly clear sky and little to no wind in the icy, exposed alpine environment. I had planned to capture a similar panorama from Hooker lake, however the closure of the Hooker valley track put those plans on hold until 2020. We managed to arrive and be set up to shoot by the time the milkyway was rising vertically on the northeastern horizon. It's a humbling feeling being in such a powerful environment in the middle of the night. The mountains (and even icebergs) towered above us like sleeping giants in the darkness, while the sound of distant avalanches echoed through the valleys. This Panorama is comprised of 25 tracked and an additional 25 untracked frames, pieced together to retain pin sharp detail in the sky and foreground. On location, the image took over an hour to capture, and I pieced this enormous image file together over 3 days of hammering away in post processing. This image is proudly featured on the November page of my 2020 calendar.

M O O N . A church in the Wairarapa lit under the crescent moon. The milkyway is barely visible past it’s bright glow. .

Check this out! It's the Horsehead Nebula 🐎⁠ ⁠ This dark cloud of dust and gas is located in the constellation of Orion, and is most visible in the Summer evening sky in the Southern Hemisphere.⁠ ⁠ Images of this nebula reveal a deep-red colour that comes from ionised hydrogen gas. We reckon it makes for a pretty EPIC photo.⁠ ⁠ Our tour guides are super knowledgable and ready to answer all your questions about the night sky. Book in during your next trip to Tekapo. 👆LINK IN BIO👆⁠ ⁠ ⁠ ⁠ ⁠ ⁠ #stars #stargazing #nz #nightskynz #nightsky #newzealand #internationaldarkskyreserve #internationalspacestation #ISS #explore #darkskyreserve #bestvacations #astrophotographynz #astrophotographytekapo #astrophotographytips #astrophotographylife #astrophotography_space #astrophotographyarchive #astrophotography_ #adventure⁠

That Wellington Tree with the lights of Eastbourne in the middle distance. As the weather was largely unsuitable for the final few days of the 2019 astro season, I’ve found myself revisiting old shots with a little feeling of melancholy. I never delete “crappy” shots and am frequently surprised by the veritable treasure trove to be found whilst revisiting previous efforts with new techniques. Here then is an image from 2018, reprocessed and improved significantly. . . . . #newzealand #chase_your_dreams #nikond500 #nikonnz #nikon #nikon_photography_ #getupandshoot #theimaged #gottalovenz #destinationnz #mustdonz #nooneseesitlikeyou #nightskynz #featurenz #starscape #universetoday #nightscaper #milkywaychasers #longexponz #destinationnz

Is it a bird? Is it a plane? Nope, it's the International Space Station (ISS) zipping across the night sky. 🛰⁠ ⁠ The ISS is a large spacecraft in orbit around Earth and is home to a crew of astronauts who are researching living and working in space. A pretty sweet gig if you ask us. 😉 Here are a few fun facts...⁠ ⁠ ✨ It's speedy - it circles Earth every 90 minutes⁠ ✨ It's so bright it can be seen by the naked eye!⁠ ✨ The ISS has the volume of a five-bedroom house⁠ ⁠ Have you ever seen the International Space Station amongst the stars? Tell us about it in the comments below. 👇⁠ ⁠ 📷 @pixaglobewanderer⁠ ⁠ ⁠ ⁠ ⁠ #stars #stargazing #nz #nightskynz #nightsky #newzealand #internationaldarkskyreserve #internationalspacestation #ISS #explore #darkskyreserve #bestvacations #astrophotographynz #astrophotographytekapo #astrophotographytips #astrophotographylife #astrophotography_space #astrophotographyarchive #astrophotography_ #adventure⁠
