(Statement Pending) Hello again, it's @hookphotos. I'd first like to thank @universetoday for contacting me and allowing me to takeover their page for the day. Universe Today and their featured photographers have constantly inspired me to visit new destinations and capture moments under the stars. For my 3rd and final astrophotograph of the day, I'd like to share with you all a composite. I took both of these photographs a day apart at the same location. For the recent Total Solar Eclipse, I traveled north to Oregon. This was my first trip to the state and first time viewing a Total Solar Eclipse. I was of course planning to be somewhere in the Line of Totality. I arrived in the state 5 days early and was welcomed by wildfires in Southern and Central Oregon. I had to change my location plans and hope I could find a clear sky viewing location. Luckily after a couple days of scouting weather and talking to locals, someone suggested I try Smith Rock State Park. I arrived at the location Saturday, Hiked, and photographed the park (this is when I captured the foreground image of a hiker on the rim of the cliff), then scouted weather Sunday morning, all was good. The morning of the eclipse I woke up in mar car outside the gate to a line of cars. Entered, Parked, and Hiked up Misery Trail to the top of the State park, along with over a hundred others. Totality was amazing to say the least. I captured a series of shots with 3 cameras. More photos in my gallery (@hookphotos). After seeing photographs others had taken at the same park, I was inspired to create a composite of a hiker and the eclipse. Thus this image was created. The road trip and eclipse was a life changing experience. Oregon is now engulfed in wildfires and I hope all is resolved shortly.

Hello again, its me @hookphotos. Here is another astrophotograph! For my first photo I posted an image that I took 2 years ago, when I was starting to take Astrophotography. For my 2nd, I would like to share with you all one of my most recent astrophotographs. Earlier this year I added a Star Tracker to my equipment. Having the ability to counter the rotation of the Earth in relation to the sky allows for an increase in exposure time and decreases the need for a High ISO setting. It also allows you to stop down your aperture, achieving sharper images. I took this image off the coast of Oregon along the Samuel H. Boardman Scenic Corridor. This image is a pano/blend. This was my first time using the tracker with a 50mm lens and taking a panoramic. I took 7 images and joined them together using LR CC's photomerge. Then blended a separate foreground image taken at 24mm. I am excited to continue to use this method for the rest of this Milky Way season. Shot Info: Camera: Canon 6D Tracker: Sky Watcher Star Adventurer Sky: Canon 50mm 1.8 7 images. ISO 1600. F/2.2. 90second exposures Foreground: Rokinon 24mm 1.4 Single Exposure ISO 800. F2.0 120second exposure #milkyway #staradventures #astronomy #astrogphotography #oregoncoast #starryskies #nightphotography
Hello Everyone! My name is Jeff Hook, I'm a photography and videographer from Sacramento, CA. Its my pleasure to be able to take over @universetoday and share with you a few of my favorite astrophotos. You'll find my own gallery at @hookphotos. For my first post of the day, I would like to share with you all, an image that I captured a couple of years ago when I was first starting to take astrophotography. After being inspired by the locations of other astrophotographers on Instagram, I settled on making a trip to Shark Fin Cove, CA. As I arrived and night fell, I walked out to the rim of the cove and was pleasantly surprised to find a bright orange glow down on the beach and orange light bouncing off of the rock faces. A group of friends were having a campfire on the beach. This made for a cool juxtaposition of people under the Milky Way and starry skies. After capturing some images of them under the nights sky on the top of the cove, I made my way down, captured this image and introduced myself to them. They were all astonished by the images I captured. I like to believe they all took more time to look up at the stars that night. You never know what you'll find or who you'll meet on a trip to see the stars. Shot info: Single Exposure Canon 6D Rokinon 14mm 2.8 ISO 4000. F/2.8. 30.0sec #astrophotography #astronomy #space #milkyway #westcoastexposures #milkyskies #Californiaskies
