The skies look to be clear tonight around Brisbane, and the weather is cool, so it seems like a good night for attempting some astro photography. Not that I know anything about astro photography other than "focus to infinity and keep theopen" but ya gotta get out there and have a go and see what happens.
So I am looking for locations that are not too far away (I'm on Brisbane northside) and are relatively free enough of sources that I may get an image of the Milky Way.
I was thinking of taking a shot of one of the Glass House Mountains (Mt Tibrogargan or Mt Coonowrin) looking west ... good foreground and hopefully not too much glow from surrounding lights.
Are these locations suitable, or do I need to go further out?
Any suggestions appreciated.
