This astronomy stuff run's in the family
Here are some beautiful pictures that my brother Mark has taken over the years
The defocusing technique here really brings out the colour of the stars in Scorpius.
Who needs a flash to light the foreground when you have all that light pollution.
Catching a comet streaking across our skies.
Comet Hale-Bopp and that familiar constellation Orion.
The Moon and the planet Venus silently slip into the west.
What a wonderful place to live, such dark skies in suburbia.
Comet Hyakataki makes a brief appearance.
Comet Hale-Bopp again setting in the west.
Defocusing brings out the colours of Crux and Carina as well as making the foreground more interesting.
Crux up close and personal with the coal sack very prominent.
Scorpio rising in the east with that lovely galaxy we call home.
Comet Hale-Bopp dancing with the moon and those ever present cane fields of the North Coast.
A great up close trail of Orion showing plenty of that pink light from the Hydrogen in the Great Orion Nebula.
Crisp, dark country skies and the cross turns over again on top of a previous still image (can you spot the cross in the trees?).
Last but not least, a very smooth defocus of cross and pointers, great colours Mark.
