Aoraki Mackenzie (New Zealand) Dark Sky Site

Has anybody been to Aoraki Mackenzie (New Zealand)? My wife may be sending me in April to visit my daughter who is studying there.

Any tips?

Thank you Marty for the acquisition steps

Marty,
I’m glad Mark moved your two tutorials to the Reference forum, but it looks like I can’t comment there. So I wanted to say, “Job well done!”

That is terrific information I can play with more intelligently now.

Cheers

Marty,
What are the odds of you graciously typing up your thoughts during processing much as you did for the Data Acquisition post? That info is well organized and gives us insight into pros and cons of the tools?

Just hoping...

Re: Lucky me ...

Agreed! That is wonderful.

I also picked up much expensive equipment in response to my prayer request on the prayer chain. Someone saw my request and I had new equipment for Astro ministry in a week.

These images seem smoother than other processing I’ve seen you prefer and I think I like it! What is the difference in technique?
