(Super) Moonset from 10 March 2020 in Wellington, New Zealand
Filmed by Mark Gee

With everything that's going on in the world at the moment, it's always good to go back to enjoying some of the simple things in life, like taking time out to enjoy the beauty of nature.

I shot this video of the (super) moon setting behind my favorite treeline to the west of the city of Wellington, New Zealand last Tuesday morning. The video has been speed up so it's more of a time-lapse.

For the tech details, the shoot was planned with PhotoPills, and I was 7.4km from the treeline. I shot the video with a Nikon D850 and a 600mm f/4 lens with a 1.4x extender, giving me a total focal length of 840mm. Sunrise was only 25 minutes after I shot this, but because I exposed for the bright moon, the background came out black giving me a great silhouette of the trees as the moon passed behind them. In post, I stabilised the horizontal motion of the moon so it sets vertically rather than drifting right to left, giving the landscape left to right motion instead.

This video is made of 638 picture of the mook taken during April lunation.

In order to make the lockdown more fun, Ciel et Espace magazine have invited people on social networks to take a picture of the moon every day during April lunation, and publish it on twitter and facebook with the # ChallengeLunaire (Lunar Challenge). This invitation was relayed by French astronaut Thomas Pesquet, so the challenge became very popular and we received more than 600 pictures!
It's a team work made by Ciel et Espace , and Gustave Rudman accepted that we use his music

I filmed the International Space Station passing overhead with a telescope from my driveway the day NASA Astronauts Bob and Doug Arrived to the ISS.

Only a few short hours after NASA Astronauts Bob Behnken and Doug Hurley docked to the International Space Station (ISS), I captured them flying overhead at over 17,000 mph from Pittsburgh, PA. I used a PlaneWave Instruments L-350 mount with their CDK14 telescope and a ZWO1600mm CMOS camera to video the ISS pass.

Last year I traveled to Chile to experience the total solar eclipse from La Sarena, what an experience it was. It was my first total solar eclipse and an experience I will remember for the rest of my life. I traveled over to work as a photographer for a travel company and I wanted to attempt to capture something that hadn't been done before, a hyper-lapse video of the eclipse from a drone.
Around 10 minutes before totality I moved the drone into position and left it to fly on a pre-programmed route, I couldn't do anything else but wait and hope my planning worked.
I hope you enjoy the result and maybe it will be a fitting APOD for the anniversary of the eclipse in early July.'
If anyone can help me with embedding this video in the forum I'd greatly appreciate it
