presents the N I G H T S C A P E R • Photo Award to ... . @erictheastrojunkie . La Silla Residence, Chile (swipe left to see full image and others). Congratulations to Eric Benedetti. “The La Silla Residence offers some pretty spectacular views of the night skies, a metaphorical billion star motel. Above the residence the various observatories of La Silla dot the hill, culminating with the NTT and 3.6 meter telescope sitting atop the rest. I'm still blown away by the ridiculous airglow that dominates the southern hemisphere sky, every night we were in Chile it seemed I was getting some ridiculous airglow in my images. It almost appears as clouds in this shot, you can barely make out the Small Magellanic Cloud above the horizon. I feel insanely lucky to have been selected for the #MeetESO group and to have been able to experience these things, something I will never forget” says Eric. || Please show support to our guest artists by visiting their IG gallery. - MORE from Royce: Eric was one of 8 people selected this year out of 300+ applicants to represent the European Organization for Astronomical Research in the Southern Hemisphere (ESO) @esoastronomy. - SPEAKER: We are excited to have Eric returning with a new presentation at our 2020 @NightScaperConference — register by July 31 for a $100 discount, using coupon code: EARLY100 . - TECHNIQUE & EXIF: Tracked Panorama • Nikon Z7 + Sigma Art 35mm on a Sky Watcher Star Adventurer Mini tracking mount • 24 exposures, all at 2 minutes, ISO 800, f/2.8 • “It’s tough tracking the sky when the core is directly overhead!” . .

. - Here’s my “Light Pollution Awareness Chart” that you can freely share with others on social media. It accurately simulates the effect of light pollution on a starry night sky as one goes from a Bortle Class 1 sky (taken in Capitol Reef N.P.) to a Bortle Class 9 sky. As you can see, even in the red "City to Suburbia Transition" zone, light pollution overpowers all but a few of the brightest stars! - PROTECT NIGHT SKIES - You can help IDA @idadarksky and @roycebairphoto protect the night skies with our “Matching Gift Challenge.” Between now and August 5, your donation will be matched dollar-per-dollar!

presents the N I G H T S C A P E R • Photo Award to ... . @boonrawd_photography . Milky way meets Pacific Rim. Congratulations to Wisanu Boonrawd. (Swipe to see full image.) “This was shot from almost 2 weeks ago in Oregon. Made a quick stop here during the daytime to scout the location and check for milky way alignment. Then, returned to this place and had everything set up ready for the milky way after sunset. One base image for seastacks was captured during blue hour to maximize the detail of the seastacks, long exposure alone would not ideal for this completely dark location and it was difficult to light it up efficiently with the gears I had in hands. After taking the base image, the camera and tripod was kept at the same position throughout the shoot of that night,” says Wisanu. || Please show support to our guest artists by visiting their IG gallery. - MORE from Wisanu: This is actually not the final image that I planned for. I wanted the milky way to position a bit to the right of this frame which would better balance the composition. However, massive fog from Pacific Ocean rolled in before the milky way core moved to the right position. Anyway, not much to complain since it is better than getting nothing back from the trip. - TECHNIQUE & EXIF: Stacked/Blend • Nikon D810 + Nikkor 14-24 f/2.8G ED • sky: 19mm iso10,000 f2.8 20sec x 8 shots (median stacked) • The man standing: 19mm iso8000 f2.8 15sec x 7 shots (median stacked) • Seastack: blue hour, 19 mm, iso200 f4 20sec . .

Congratulations to Paul Wilson. “Clouds came to visit me while I was shooting last week, it was perfectly clear when I started. This was an unusually warm winter evening, it wasn't as painful as usual and I didn't have to put warmers on my lenses to stop condensation,” says Paul. || Please show support to our guest artists by visiting their IG gallery. - TECHNIQUE & EXIF: Tracked & Panorama stitch • Sky is 6 images stitched at 24mm with the Samyang, tracked on the Fornax Lightrack ii star tracker, Canon 6D H.Alpha Modified. f2.8, 60s, 1600ISO • Ground is 3 stitched images taken with the 5D4 and 24mm Samyang. f3.5, 120s, 1600ISO • All shot in the same place facing the same direction • Super happy with the H.Alpha Mod from @spencerscamera. - QUESTION to Paul: You are normally known for panoramas with around 30-50 images. Why so few in this shot? Answer: I went for the wider lens because I needed to cover the sky quickly with the cloud movement, it wouldn't stitch otherwise . .
