Tekapo Star Gazing

Tekapo Star Gazing

I’ve had an interesting in getting into night sky / astro photography for some time, but this image was from the first time I gave it a solid go.

We joined a night sky tour at the Mt John Observatory near Tekapo on New Zealand’s South Island.

The night sky was wonderful and although we were a little early in the year for the Milky Way, I am pretty happy with this first image.

The night sky is amazing—you have to have a sense of awe in having the realisation of the immenseness of the universe. Night sky photography is something I will continue to play around with, and hopefully get better at!
