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.
