Although I do night photography throughout the entire year, there are a few months of the year where the Milky Way core disappears below the horizon for all hours of darkness. Here in Southern Alberta, the start of March marks the start of Milky Way season, but it is brief. The core is only above the horizon for a short time before dawn. Spring is my favourite time to shoot the galaxy, and the core disappears again in November.
Theodore Roosevelt said, “Keep your eyes on the stars, and your feet on the ground.” Well, now you can do exactly that! Canon announced their first full-frame mirrorless camera for astrophotography, the new, Canon EOS Ra. Stemming off the EOS R system, with innovative features, this new camera has been perfectly designed for hobbyists and professionals alike to make the most of their astrophotographic dreams. Talk about reaching for the stars!
