After I watched this tutorial, I packed my gear, jumped to my car and drive for a darker sky. I taken few pictures and tried your postprocessing. Oh man, my result was awful. I have to practise more. But not all pictures were for trash. For hunting Orion constellation is too late this year. I will be better wait to winter months, when Orion is higher at the sky. But one picture save my night. Ok, it is far away from TOP, but it makes me happy. It is not my favorite Orion but as I said it save my astro session ;)

This just about sums up my thoughts on everyone arguing about Full Frame vs APS-C.

Hi Ian,

Fantastic video. Thank you. Although I still feel I'm missing something. In the best timelapse videos on vimeo the quality of the sequences seems so much better, even compared to your video. Is this a noise issue? I can't seem to replicate it myself.

Made this 6x6 sized panorama with the Sony a7S on the way to Reno via Highway 395. Compact medium format anyone?

This latest post from +Diana Southern features a ton of astrophotography from our trip. 
 
We arrived at Bryce in the heat of the day, but our best photos and memories came from the night. The moonlight. The calm. The quiet. And talk about taking the road less traveled, not a single other soul was around. View photos and videos from day 4 of…
