A Little Night Planet
Copyright: György Soponyai

The annual astro camp of Hungarian Astronomical Association was held end of July in Gerecse Mountain near Tarján (~40km from Budapest). During those three nights I took the opportunity to accomplish my long-planned 360^ startrail panorama photo with the hope that the light of observing lamps could produce a cool and intimate foreground of the scene. I was very lucky with the weather: only the first night was partially cloudly so I took 106 minutes of exposure (53 x 2 min) turning the camera to different directions every night.

Image


This image was created by applying a Little Planet effect on that all-sky startrail photo.

Wellington, New Zealand is a city where I live and work, and it's also one of my favourite cities in the world. I can't think of too many capital cities where you can drive 20 mins from the city centre, and be able to park the car and watch the Milky Way rise over the horizon and actually see star reflections in your car...
