Southern Nights

Southern Nights

One of the great things about living in Canberra is the ready access to beautiful night sky locations away from the city lights. This image of the Milky Way, clearly showing the Emu in the Sky, was created by the side of Naas Road in the southern part of the Australian Capital Territory. This image was one of the last created with my old Micro Four-Thirds (M43) camera, before shifting to Fujifilm.1

The advent of tools like DxO PureRAW 2 and 3, and Adobe Lightroom’s de-noise AI, have allowed me to go back and take a look at some old images.2

This image was a single image at f/2, 13 seconds and ISO1600.

  1. My growing interest in astrophotography was one of the final catalysts for my move away from M43 to the Fuji X system. 
  2. While I could’ve used the manual de-noise tools in various apps, the new AI tools are incredible, and do a better job than I could. De-noise is one of the best uses of AI in my photography workflow.
