It takes 430 years for the light from Polaris (the north star) to arrive on earth... It travelled all that way to get sucked into the lens of my camera and chucked into my gallery...

306 photos stacked ontop of one another, then a panoramic making up the lower part.

F/3.5 - 8sec exp - ISO800 - About 40mins of the earths rotation.

As you can imagine it is pretty boring standing in a field for 40 mins in the cold... what really made it painful was the church about 30 meters away from me decided tonight would be a good night to ring its bells constantly for 30 of the minutes...

Good times...

The Crescent Nebula, the roughly round thing in the bottom-right if the image, is an emission nebula located in the constellation Cygnus. Its form is due to a the fast stellar wind from a star colliding with and ionizing the slower moving wind ejected by the same star when it became a red giant around 400,000 years ago.

You need a very dark sky to see it and a big telescope. It is very faint and the eyes are not enough sensitive to the red light. There is only one site from where I saw it : the Col de Restefond in south-eat of France. One of the very best astronomy spot in the country. At 2500m high and far from the city lights the sky is awesome and we can see a lot of object better than anywhere else.

There was a meteor shower not long ago, so we went to shoot it. When I saw the full-moon-lit sky, I decided to give that up and go for something different...
This huge statue served as the radio antenna; 3 hours of startrails provided the radio waves :)

The third quarter moon rises on the horizon and enters the "half pipe".

I made a big mistake with this startrail. For the second time in a row I forgot to dial in my custom white balance. The camera tries its best but the auto white balance setting leads to unnatural star colours. Until I get around to manually changing the white balance on all the RAW files this will have to do for now.

Some of you may be wondering why I didn't have my astrophotography setup out on a good night like this. The truth is I have had a back/hip problem for the last two weeks and I physically can not lift the heavy mount. Hopefully recover soon.

Marge Lake, Payette National Forest, Idaho
I tranquil morning in the Salmon River Mountains of Idaho. No clouds, but the still waters were enough to make me happy.
Did battle with swarms of mosquitoes, but that just makes it all the more fun and memorable.. Right?
