Full screen view highly recommended.

A third quarter moon rises in between The Cathedral and The Hump in Mt Buffalo National Park, Australia. 30/06/2013. 20 image panorama.

It was from the top of The Hump on the right of this image that I captured my most recent Aurora Australis display. I finished the timelapse I was shooting just after the moon came up and despite the freezing temperatures I couldn't resist taking this panorama on the way back down.

Taken the same night:

Gorgeous work, Greg! How do you usually make a resize of your photos? They look so sharp and detailed!

Terrific Panorama with a nice centered compo. I really like how the rocks left and right envelope the moon.

How nice to have that pleasant view. Looks very nice and serene. Personally, I think it has a very nice calming effect when viewed :D.

I can almost imagine the amount of love you must harbour for this... lugging all your gear up there - and down in the middle of the night...
this on is breathtaking, Greg. again :boogie:

did you know that there is a problem with the immense emotional feel-good-kick we get when being under the stars? (I get that kick every time and I assume, you're a bigger junky than me because you were lucky enough to be able to afford the gear ...which gives you so many more options to "get high".)
anyway - the problem is that nothing else can quite compete with this "love".
well, it's not necessarily a "problem". but it can be, I guess. when nothing else in life can grow enough to give us a comparable feel-good-kick.

is there a life after astrophotography?

Well........If there is a life after/outside of astrophotography, I don't want to know about it! :D Certainly well and truly addicted to that high.  I have had bad weather and been unwell lately and last night was the first time I had been out under a truly dark and clear sky full of stars for weeks, and I had missed it so badly.  I am certainly a Nyctophiliac: dictionary.reference.com/brows…
