Spent the Christmas 2019 break on the south coast of Victoria and took the opportunity to shoot the local light house. Coastline here is pretty rugged with plenty of loose rocks, dips and crevasses to really do a number on your ankle. Then there is always the very heavy surf and tide to be thinking of. Really just highlighted for me the importance of scouting your intended location for shooting astro in the daylight hours so you can get the lay of the land to plan your compositions safely.
This night was the first time out with the a7R I had picked up as I wanted to be able to produce high resolution single shot astro sequences. I now have two cameras going with ultimate light sensitivity with my a7S and the 36MP high resolution of the a7R.
