presents the N I G H T S C A P E R • Photo Award to ... . @jayloobyphotography . North Rim of the Grand Canyon (swipe to see full image). Congratulations to Jay Looby. “I always knew shooting the Milky Way at the Grand Canyon would be a challenge and it truly was just that. No real way to light this scene at night so shooting the canyon at dusk and during blue hour was my only chance to get the detail down below. The next even bigger challenge was blending the two together and I couldn’t be happier with the result. I love the almost dream like quality of the canyon with the airglow around the core. The small amount of light pollution on the horizon is the Grand Canyon Village and South Rim Visitors Center. This was shot on the evening of July 4th and we were able to watch the fireworks show at the South Rim while we shot the Galaxy,” says Jay. || Please show support to our guest artists by visiting their IG gallery. - TECHNIQUE & EXIF: Tracked/Stacked/Blended • Canon 5D Mark II + rokinon 14mm t3.1 Cine + ioptron Skyguider Pro • Foreground - taken between dusk and blue hour, 10 shots stacked @ f5.6, 14mm, ISO 800, 0.8 sec exposure • Sky - tracked with iOptron Skyguider Pro, 5 shots stacked @ f5.6, 14mm, ISO1600, 300 sec exposure each (25 minutes total exposure). - From ROYCE: Many people don’t realize that you can’t photograph the Milky Way over the Grand Canyon from the more popular South Rim side (the MW is behind you when facing the canyon). You have to go to the more remote North Rim to get this view! Those of us heading to the @NightScaperConference next May will be only 80 miles from the North Rim . .

. - In • M E M O R Y • of ... . @bbloss8 . Brian Bloss died in an accident this week. He was only 32 years old. He was an incredibly talented filmmaker and photographer. His passing is a huge loss to the LA photo community. - Brian took this photo in Chile, the day before the solar eclipse. He wrote, “The night before the eclipse @martin_heck and I setup up a few timelapses of the Milky Way. Before we started we decided to take a few self portrait. Overall I had a very successful shoot in South America and look forward to seeing how the play out in the film. Viewing the eclipse was a surreal experience. Your eyes and mind can’t perceive what is happening. Thankful to have gotten to experience it with Martin. After that we were granted access to the ALMA telescope array. Which is a very special and exclusive thing. Now I have a month of back processing to my trips. The last three months have felt like a dream. Now I should be back in LA for at least a week. If I’ve been saying let’s meetup when I am back then hit me up and let’s make it happen. …Happy to be back in ‘merica.” - Brian, may you rest in peace. We will miss you! . . . . . . . #nightscaper #natgeospace #ig_nightphotography #intothenight #nightscape #nightscapes #nightscapephotography #night_shooterz #magic_at_night #nightshot #nightsky #nightshooters #nightpics #nightphoto #night_excl #nightphotography_exclusive #nightimages #WeOwnTheNight_IG #supreme_nightshots #nightview #nightsofwonder #timelessuniverse #universetoday #fantastic_universe #milkywaygalaxy #milkywaypics #milkywaychasers #milkywaygrams at La Serena, Chile

Crites. “I did a little dumpster diving and processed this photo from last year. This was definitely a high risk, high reward type of shot. I was set up in a blind spot, located down in hole unable to see if a big wave was coming. Definitely made for some excitement when heard and felt the rumble of a massive wave detonating followed by the loud sound of the water fall seen in this shot. Heart was racing with excitement.

presents the N I G H T S C A P E R • Photo Award to ... . @ale_astrophotography . Sitialdelfuego ~ Chile. Congratulations to Alexis Trigo. “A great honor to be part of this experience called "sitialdelfuego" with its exquisite dishes, learning about gastronomy and Andean cultures. It was about 45 minutes looking for the correct position and the precise moment to record this scene, what I most thought was how to dodge the light of the fire so that it did not affect the long exposure photography of the sky since the rays of light were reflected a lot on the lens and with high ISO sensitivity meant to destroy the photo. Finally after several tests and ideas I managed to make this Panorama of 12 photographs.” says Alexis. || Please show support to our guest artists by visiting their IG gallery. - TECHNIQUE & EXIF: Pano / Blend • Sky: 6 pics - 15 sec - ISO 1600 - f2.8 - 16mm • People: 6 pics - 1 /4 - ISO 400 - f2.8 - 16mm . .

presents the N I G H T S C A P E R • Photo Award to ... . @erictheastrojunkie . La Silla Residence, Chile (swipe left to see full image and others). Congratulations to Eric Benedetti. “The La Silla Residence offers some pretty spectacular views of the night skies, a metaphorical billion star motel. Above the residence the various observatories of La Silla dot the hill, culminating with the NTT and 3.6 meter telescope sitting atop the rest. I'm still blown away by the ridiculous airglow that dominates the southern hemisphere sky, every night we were in Chile it seemed I was getting some ridiculous airglow in my images. It almost appears as clouds in this shot, you can barely make out the Small Magellanic Cloud above the horizon. I feel insanely lucky to have been selected for the #MeetESO group and to have been able to experience these things, something I will never forget” says Eric. || Please show support to our guest artists by visiting their IG gallery. - MORE from Royce: Eric was one of 8 people selected this year out of 300+ applicants to represent the European Organization for Astronomical Research in the Southern Hemisphere (ESO) @esoastronomy. - SPEAKER: We are excited to have Eric returning with a new presentation at our 2020 @NightScaperConference — register by July 31 for a $100 discount, using coupon code: EARLY100 . - TECHNIQUE & EXIF: Tracked Panorama • Nikon Z7 + Sigma Art 35mm on a Sky Watcher Star Adventurer Mini tracking mount • 24 exposures, all at 2 minutes, ISO 800, f/2.8 • “It’s tough tracking the sky when the core is directly overhead!” . .

. - Here’s my “Light Pollution Awareness Chart” that you can freely share with others on social media. It accurately simulates the effect of light pollution on a starry night sky as one goes from a Bortle Class 1 sky (taken in Capitol Reef N.P.) to a Bortle Class 9 sky. As you can see, even in the red "City to Suburbia Transition" zone, light pollution overpowers all but a few of the brightest stars! - PROTECT NIGHT SKIES - You can help IDA @idadarksky and @roycebairphoto protect the night skies with our “Matching Gift Challenge.” Between now and August 5, your donation will be matched dollar-per-dollar!

presents the N I G H T S C A P E R • Photo Award to ... . @boonrawd_photography . Milky way meets Pacific Rim. Congratulations to Wisanu Boonrawd. (Swipe to see full image.) “This was shot from almost 2 weeks ago in Oregon. Made a quick stop here during the daytime to scout the location and check for milky way alignment. Then, returned to this place and had everything set up ready for the milky way after sunset. One base image for seastacks was captured during blue hour to maximize the detail of the seastacks, long exposure alone would not ideal for this completely dark location and it was difficult to light it up efficiently with the gears I had in hands. After taking the base image, the camera and tripod was kept at the same position throughout the shoot of that night,” says Wisanu. || Please show support to our guest artists by visiting their IG gallery. - MORE from Wisanu: This is actually not the final image that I planned for. I wanted the milky way to position a bit to the right of this frame which would better balance the composition. However, massive fog from Pacific Ocean rolled in before the milky way core moved to the right position. Anyway, not much to complain since it is better than getting nothing back from the trip. - TECHNIQUE & EXIF: Stacked/Blend • Nikon D810 + Nikkor 14-24 f/2.8G ED • sky: 19mm iso10,000 f2.8 20sec x 8 shots (median stacked) • The man standing: 19mm iso8000 f2.8 15sec x 7 shots (median stacked) • Seastack: blue hour, 19 mm, iso200 f4 20sec . .

presents the N I G H T S C A P E R • Photo Award to ... . @paul_wilson_images . Kaitorete Spit, Canterbury, New Zealand. Congratulations to Paul Wilson. “Clouds came to visit me while I was shooting last week, it was perfectly clear when I started. This was an unusually warm winter evening, it wasn't as painful as usual and I didn't have to put warmers on my lenses to stop condensation,” says Paul. || Please show support to our guest artists by visiting their IG gallery. - TECHNIQUE & EXIF: Tracked & Panorama stitch • Sky is 6 images stitched at 24mm with the Samyang, tracked on the Fornax Lightrack ii star tracker, Canon 6D H.Alpha Modified. f2.8, 60s, 1600ISO • Ground is 3 stitched images taken with the 5D4 and 24mm Samyang. f3.5, 120s, 1600ISO • All shot in the same place facing the same direction • Super happy with the H.Alpha Mod from @spencerscamera. - QUESTION to Paul: You are normally known for panoramas with around 30-50 images. Why so few in this shot? Answer: I went for the wider lens because I needed to cover the sky quickly with the cloud movement, it wouldn't stitch otherwise . .
