If you know someone in Melbourne interested in 'Shooting Stars', let them know I'm running a Night Sky Photography Workshop at Michael's Camera Store this Friday night. One of just a few for the year but I guarantee they won't regret joining in!

Looks like Brad Goldpaint has joined the eMotimo bandwagon, and that my review helped him make the choice - thanks for the hat tip Brad! It sure is fun to gear to use! Look forward to seeing your repeat motion efforts :-)
An in-depth review of the eMotimo TB3 and an exciting collaboration with Goldpaint Photography.

I had great fun last night but made a very dumb mistake mid-eclipse that puts a big hole in my plans to animate the whole sequence :-(. But here's the kind of image I was getting through the scope. Canon 6D, Takahashi FS-102 with 1.6x extender on AZ-EQ6 mount. 8 secs, f13, ISO400.

I know this is an unusual thing to promote on my feed, but I guess I could claim some serious street cred down at the pub for having my eclipse footage included in a Porsche commercial :-)

Pretty amazing. Porsche had an important impact in certain choices I made during my youth that ended up with me following a career in Engineering. I still follow their work, even though they dropped most of the philosophy that once inspired me. I would never imagine they would be using a photo of yours...

Great article about the Orionid Meteor Shower this week featuring one of my images. Will you be out with your camera?

Skiing the Jagungal Wilderness now available on the blog for your reading pleasure :-)
What an epic trip.. nine days back country skiing in the Australian 'Alps'. Who'd have thought such a long, remote and rewarding ski trek could be had in our own backyard. View the full album of photos on SmugMug. If you're planning your own K2K or back-country ski in the Jagungal Wilderness, ...

Who says you can't teach an old dog new tricks? I wouldn't have believed this much was possible with a compact camera but the fast f2.0 lens and big sensor on the new G1X Mark II make some fun things very easy. Thanks to Canon Australia for asking me to be involved with the making of this video. - Phil

This could encourage people to get into astrophotography, but on the other hand, I don't like that they are encouraging the firing of flashes just to put a person into the foreground (it also adds an odd halo around the person).
