Stars over Taupo

Stars over Taupo

1st attempt at long exposures of the night sky (i.e. longer than 30 seconds). Actually, of the numerous shots taken this night, this was the 2nd attempt – the best.

Hue/Saturation, Sharpening, Crop and Rotate.

Several other people had recently beaten me to the punch when submitting this type of shot, but finally I got my Nikon remote to properly take this shot. Thanks to a piece open-source software, Stellarium, I can actually show you (albiet a computer-generated screenshot) what I took a picture of, complete with overlays of constellations etc, computed from my longitude and latitude and time. Amazing.
