I have had these shots from Castle Hill, New Zealand for a few months now, while I decided what I wanted to do with them.
Castle Hill is probably my favourite close spot to shoot at which is only an hour from the city but the sky is very dark still.
I shot the sky with the Fornax Lightrack II star tracker as a panorama with a 40% overlap, one minute each exposure. The milky way core was so bright and close to the horizon, it looked massive being so close to the landscape.
A few nights later I revisited Castle Hill after sunset during the blue hour, put my tripod in the same place and shot the same scene, with the extra light it was possible to use a lower ISO making for a cleaner final image with less noise and more detail.
