Let’s start this post with some excuses. I have loved all the comments on the bot post, but I haven’t responded to them, though I do plan to. I was out for most of Friday and Saturday and I thought it would be better just to approve them, then later on respond. I haven’t done the response part yet, but will do so in the next couple of days. Okay, so just one excuse.
So on Friday I drove to Aireys Inlet for the New Moon. For those that don’t know the night of the new moon is the best time of the month to capture the milky way. Thankfully here in Australia you don’t have to go far to get it. I’ve been to Aireys Inlet before to get photos of it, so I was keen to try again.
I was using PhotoPills to work out where the milky way would be. Well I messed it up. We should have been on the other side of the lighthouse, which is where I had planned to be at first. I only hope with experience I will learn to read it better. I know it will be a really good tool.
Since I stuffed up being able to get the lighthouse I just turned the camera around and took the milky way over the ocean. Though you can see Lorne in the distance.
I also took some images of the lighthouse in the afternoon. I was hoping to do some time lapse before the night sky but there were no clouds and I thought it would be boring without them. I am thinking I should go back sometime and do some though, I think they would be nice.
I have put them all together in a video with the images before dark at first and finishing with my first time lapse of the milky way. I hope you enjoy it.
