Here's an incredible shot from Slovinsky.art using the Star Adventurer!

View to the vast mirror ❄🌲✨
As the winter starts in the Northern hemisphere, the known asterism Summer triangle is setting at the beginning of nights. Winter constellations are rising and shining the whole night. But just after dusk, at the beginning of the astronomical night, bright light from the west is shining along the sky. It’s nicely visible by the naked eye and maybe looks like if someone lit the particles in the sky with a strong reflector. In fact, it’s not far away from true, but on an extremely huge scale. What causes the ghost light? In the ecliptic band in the inner Solar System, there are a lot of particles, dust, and rocks. Due to its tiny size, together, it creates a vast reflecting surface. Sun permanently lit this huge mirror and we can observe it as a light cone up in the sky. And as You can see, I literally enjoyed the view to the largest mirror in Solar System.
Have you shot star-trails before?
Here's an image from our ambassador Shadow & Shade
This is a great way to see the rotation of the earth and how using tracking mounts like the Star Adventurer counteracts the movement seen in this image.
TE MAUNGA O TARANAKI TRAILS.
The Pouakai Tarns of Mt Taranaki as seen on the clearest and calmest of any night you could possibly get here. 3 hours of stunning star trails over arguably one of New Zealand's most recognised locations.
This is my favourite place in the whole world and under the calmest and clearest conditions I have seen in all my 30 or so years of coming here.
THIS is the star trail image I have wanted and waited for from here ever since I began my astrophotography journey. I have been coming back several times each year for many years in the hopes of having such conditions and finally on Boxing Day 2019 they happened.
For those who have been here, you will know to get an all night with no wind is virtually impossible...this area is so exposed to the winds that blow up through the valley below. But on this occasion it was as if it was fated and the universe finally relented and let me have my time.
What made this night even more special was the fact that this usually crowded and instagram thrashed place, was empty and I was the only person up here this entire night... another thing I will attribute to fate.
