Southern Night Sky Observing

The third part of our trip was a week-long stay on Tivoli Farm in Namibia specifically for night-sky astrophotography of the southern hemisphere areas inaccessible to us at home.

Southern Milky Way from Alpha Centauri to Eta Carinae




Except for the last two shots above, the photos were shot on medium format (6x7 cm) Kodak E200 (+2 push) taken either with a Pentax 105mm camera lens at f/4 (30 minutes), or a Borg 100ED telescope with f/4 super reducer (60 minutes).

The last two photos were on 35mm Kodak E200. Details are with the enlarged photos.
