Today's ABC Open photos

Quambatook Silo Cinema
By Laura O'Dwyer ·  · From Stargazing

The Quambatook Silo Cinema evolved from an artist in residence program run a few years ago in Quambatook which culminated in a short film being projected onto the Silos. It looked absolutely fantastic and was suprisingly undistorted if watching from directly infront near the projector. Through the FRRR program, the Development Group was able to get a grant to purchase a 5500 lumin projector that would allow us to project movies onto the Silo's ourselves, and the Quambatook Silo Cinema was born.
The Dressmaker was our third movie to be screened and our most successful to date. Our small population of around 200 was doubled for a night bringing an economic boost to our local caravan park and pub. Everyone that went seems to think it was fantastic experience.
I couldn't resist taking this vertical panorama when I saw the milky way rising above the enthralled, and more importantly for astrophotography, still audience. The photo is two long exposure photos joined together using Lightroom but has had no other manipulation. Published 24 Feb 2017.  Quambatook VIC 3540

Reach for the stars
By Sophie Fazackerley ·  · From Stargazing

The tallest and brightest aurora I've seen, with the wide angled lens on my camera unable to capture its entirety. After trekking through ankle deep water to reach this particular spot while watching the aurora building, I was elated it put on its best show once I had set up here. The Milky Way can be seen through the distinct rays of the aurora. It reached so high into the sky for about 15 minutes - I would have developed a sore neck if it had gone on for much longer!                     Published 30 Mar 2017.  Howden TAS 7054
