It's been a while since we posted about Night Mode in TPE for iOS, but given that the centre of the Milky Way is now re-emerging into Northern skies at night, it seems a good time.

Here's pretty much all you need to know about the information presented in Night Mode in TPE, in one picture:

Hoping this dang storm off the coast won't block the view here in southeastern Virginia.

Planning the Shot
Here's a new spin on one of my favorite spots to shoot in London. Earlier this week I noticed that it was supposed to be mostly clear later in the week, so I decided to check out viewing angles on The Photographer's Ephemeris (TPE). Needless to say I was really happy when I happened to notice that the sunset was supposed to be right between Big Ben and the bridge. It was mostly clear today with only a few clouds, so I thought I'd head out at sunset and see if I could get the shot. If you don't use TPE or something like it, you should check it out.

Here's the night version of this shot: https://plus.google.com/+DavidRRobinson/posts/6dC2hoBGjGj

With the release of The Photographer's Transit 2.0, yesterday, both our apps now support both iPhone and iPad.

If you already purchased TPE at full price, you can save over 50% on The Photographer's Transit using the "complete my bundle" option in the App Store.

Ironic that your sketch above may be my exact actual viewing conditions Sunday night. I'll be checking the web application that indicates exactly where the moon will rise from a particular famous mountaintop viewpoint, before I depart from home tomorrow night. Thank you for this timely reminder. -Mark Seibold, Artist-As yet Astronomer, Portland/Sandy Oregon

OK, moon photographers: here are some more details on the upcoming "blood supermoon" (a total lunar eclipse which coincides with a perigee moon). You'll be lucky to see more than two or three of these in a lifetime, so read on to get the low down for what will be visible in your part of the world:

California boasts some of the best landscape photography locations in the world, and Jeff Sullivan​ has authored a new book covering Southern California.

If you're not familiar with it, the "Photographing..." series of books is a wonderful resource for exploring the western states of the US. Written by photographers who know the locations well, each book conveys exactly what you need to know in a concise and informative fashion, illustrated by wonderful shots that will make you want to head out on a road trip straight away.

It was the Photographing the Southwest series that inspired us to explore Colorado, Arizona, Utah and New Mexico when we first came to the US in 2007.

Highly recommended!

It's all about the light
Introduction

The Photographer's Ephemeris (TPE) helps you plan outdoor photography shoots.

TPE is a map-centric sun and moon calculator: see how the light will fall on the land, be it day or night, for almost anywhere on earth.

Ideal for landscape, nature, travel and outdoor photographers, TPE's map-based approach means you can search for any place name on the planet or position the map pin exactly where you want it.

Advanced features include: automatic time zone and elevation detection, correction for atmospheric refraction and height above the horizon. You can even determine when the sun or moon will be visible from behind nearby hills and mountains.

TPE for iOS (iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch)

TPE for Android (2.2+)

TPE for Desktop (Windows, Mac OS X)
