This is a 72 shot panorama of the Milky Way rising above a farm at Mogumber, 1.5 hours north of Perth in Western Australia.

Prominent in this image are the Large & Small Magellanic Clouds, just above the light pollution on the right of the dirt track. Above them is the pink, flower shaped nebula, Carina. Just to the right of centre is the dark Coalsack Nebula alongside the constellation, Crux, aka the Southern Cross. Above the horizon is some reddish-pink airglow.

This is a 58 shot panorama of the Milky Way setting over a wheat farm near Wongamine, 90 minutes north east of Perth in Western Australia.

I had initially planned on placing the lone tree in the middle but when I arrived I noticed the light pollution, from the nearby town of Toodyay, and decided instead to use that as a kind of backlight for the tree. The clouds were unexpected and I was panicking through most of the shoot hoping they wouldn't make their way to the core, I've had several trips ruined or cut short by cloud cover. Thankfully that didn't eventuate. The very bright 'star' to the right of the tree is the diffused light of Venus.

This is a 39 shot panorama of the Crux & Carina region of the Milky Way at Lake Mears, 2 hours east of Perth in Western Australia.

My plan on this night was to spend most of it here, thinking the lake wouldn't be that full but it was full to the brim. This was basically the only spot I could get any shots in so I had to make do with this and make some other plans on the fly. The dead trees in the lake were light painted with a hand held spotlight.

Prominent in this image is the pink coloured Carina Nebula in the centre. Just above that is the dark Coalsack Nebula which has Crux hanging off the bottom right. On the far left, at about the same altitude as Carina, is the Large Magellanic Cloud. There was no wind at all when I was shooting this panorama so I got the added bonus of some nice reflections.
