I am unable to associate stress with Astrophotography. Stumbling around alone, in the dark attempting to capture the night sky has turned out to be quite therapeutic and relaxing for me. I lost sleep this summer but I had some pretty memorable nocturnal adventures instead.
So glad I finally got around to spending more nights exploring the island. Equipment: Sony a7, Rokinon 24mm, 14mm, Tripod, Remote Shutter Release and a couple Flashlights. Nearly all images taken at 24mm f/1.4, 20s, ISO 3200 unless specified. Post-Processing done in Adobe Lightroom and Nik Plugins. All images taken on The Big Island of Hawaii during the summer of 2016. All images except Volcano/Coast shots taken on Mauna Kea.
