  1. I had a goal during the eclipse. To create and HDR photo of it. You can easily make out the surface of the moon, the suns corona and two large prominence's located at 1 and 3 o'clock. This image was created with 8 photos, processed in LightRoom and PhotoShop. This was my first eclipse and first time photographing an eclipse. What do you guys think? Gear used: Sony Alpha a6300 Orion ED80T - 720mm equiv Celestron AVX Crooked River Ranch, Oregon
  2. This is my composite of the eclipse reaching totality. Each photo is about 10 minutes apart until it reaches totality. I love the detail of the sun's corona. Seeing the picture after witnessing the eclipse is incredible. I feel so fortunate to have captured this magical moment. Gear used: Sony Alpha a6300 Orion ED80T Celestron AVX mount
  3. The waxing gibbous moon was rising, illuminating thin clouds and silhouetted by my friend on top of Chahar volcano in Inner Mongolia, China. Beyond the clouds you can vaguely see the milky way where the constellation Cygnus was soaring upwards. A7R2 + Laowa 15mm F2, ISO640, 30s, 2-panel panorama. 500px.com/haitongyu
  4. (Apologies for the hyperlinks, still trying to figure out posting on this forum) My wife and I traveled to Zon National Park in Utah, USA in May of this year. Here are a few of my favorites: Our first hike of the trip. Taken at sunset from Canyon Overlook Trail. 24-70 f/4 at 24mm f/9 HDR base image 1/200 ISO 100 handheld. https://flic.kr/p/ULSJ45 View of the Watchman formation from the Watchman hike. 24-70 f/4 at 24mm and f/5.6 1/600 ISO 100 handheld. https://flic.kr/p/ULUYF7 View of the Watchman formation near sunset on a day with better clouds. 24-70 f/4 at 35mm f/9 1/125 handheld. https://flic.kr/p/UQM6j8 View of mesa wall at sunset. 24-70 f/4 at 36mm f/9 1/100 ISO 100 handheld. https://flic.kr/p/UfMPs5 Sunrise photo taken on our hike to observation point. We took a cheater's hike starting from a trailhead outside of the east enterance to the park. Made the one way trip distance around 3.7 mi on to of a mesa vs the 8mi starting from the canyon floor and hiking to the top. My wife is pregnant, so we had to be conservative on trip distances. 24-70mm f/4 at 49mm f/7.1 1/80 ISO 160 handheld. https://flic.kr/p/UQMDBp Taken from observation point. You can see angel's landing on the right and have a breathtaking view of the main canyon. The virgin river is seen winding though the canyon floor, closely followed by the park access road. 24-70mm f/4 at 24mm f/10 1/30 ISO 100 tripod mounted. https://flic.kr/p/UfPB4d Night shot taken of the main entrance park sign. E 16mm f/2.8 at 16mm f/2.8 1/20 ISO 800 tripod. https://flic.kr/p/UMmkU9 Night shot taken from near main park entrance. Watchman formation is in view. E 16mm f/2.8 at 16mm f/2.8 1/20 ISO 800 tripod. https://flic.kr/p/TBn1SV Those are some of my favorites. We also saw Bryce Canyon National Park and Arches National Park while we were there, but those pictures will be in another post. Here's the link to the trip album on Flickr: https://flickr.com/photos/149544869@N08/sets/72157681970352140
  5. Falling stars during peak hours of Perseid Meteor Shower 2016, shot over lake Duolun, Inner Mongolia, China. Around 90 meteoroids, and also the reflections of the brighter ones, were recorded during the 3-hour period shooting, and were stacked into a single image according to their relative position to the starry background. Sony a7s (astro-converted) and Nikon 14-24mm F2.8.
  6. Hello Just a question for those who actually tried this. How is it performing. The most important question here is how it performs at night (with stars) versus coma, CA and sharpness (corners, presume center will be ok). Real life examples would be welcome. Didn’t find much found on the web so presume it must not be so good. Not interested in propositions to use other lenses...just FF-lens + speedbooster on a6000 or other aXXXX. Friendly greetings
  7. I just upgraded from a Canon t2i to the Sony A7ii. Loving the sony world. Looking to purchase an affordable lens for astrophotography. Previously I used the Rokinon 16mm f/2.0, but that only works for crop sensors. So need to upgrade. What do you recommend? I really like the Rokinon lenses, particularly the Rokinon 24mm f/1.4 ($549 USD), but does it make more sense to get a Canon EF mount and just use an adapter. Or is there an advantage to use the Sony E mount.
  8. Hello, Just started shooting astrophotography with an A7s Mk2 and I am trying to come up with a workflow that includes automated dark frame subtraction. When using the Canon 6D I use PixelFixer which has a batch processing mode for this purpose and works great. Unfortunately PixelFixer does not support ARW. Ideally, I would like to do this in camera raw with neutral settings but have not been able to find a way to script in CR. I can use batch processing in PS (with actions) to do this but would like to avoid the extra step (but in hind sight this is the same thing I am doing with PixelFixer). Has anyone found I good work flow? Thanks! -bill
  9. Coming from the 6D, I'm really happy with the images I recently got with my A7mkii with the Samyang 24mm F1.4 lenshttp://_DSC7607- Pano-Edit Photoshop jpg by Gary Ashton, on Flickr _DSC7522-Pano by Gary Ashton, on Flickr
  10. Here you go! C&C welcome. Total shooting time was over 7 hours. I am making a longer timelapse, and this one is with the milky way sequences only. Full Sakartvelo timelapse will have one city sequence and 3-4 mountain cloud sequences.
  11. Some pictures I took tonight. I used my A7S with my Samyang 12mm. Came out pretty good I think. 20 sec ISO 1600 f2
