Self portrait at Lake Takapo

Recommended Posts

Big thanks to all the team who gave us the tour of the wonderful Mount John observatory absolutely amazing place and a 'must do' if you go to New Zealand

We spent two and a half hours under the most amazing skies a night we will never forget.

Also managed this 60 sec shot with a cheeky peek of me and Vic lit up using our supplied torches! The black in the bottom left is Lake Takapo and the hills to the East..

We only had one day and night here and it was raining and cloudy all day but just before the tour started the skies cleared, unforgettable.

Excellent - I visited Mount John last year - sadly there were only a couple of clear nights during the three weeks we were in NZ but those two nights were absolutely worth it - to see Orion 'upside down' was spooky!
