River Murray Dark Sky Reserve

We are lucky to have a new dark observing site relatively close, about 90 minutes drive away, east of Adelaide towards the Murray River.

I have been there three times since New Year and its been very good.

I have a few photos to show and will keep adding more as I complete their processing.

Taken with a Canon 6D through an 80mm EON ED Refractor on a EQ6-R mount.

21 x 2 minute light frames calibrated with dark and bias frames.

Processed with Deep Sky Stacker, PS CS2 and LR4.

Large Magelanic Cloud, also taken on 13 Jan 2019 at Meldanda, South Australia.

Taken with a modified Canon 600D through a Canon EF-S 60mm lens on a iOptron Skytracker on my camera tripod.
