on Thursday night I boarded an @airnz 767 from Dunedin, New Zealand to travel down towards the Antarctic Circle to view the Aurora Australis. This was the first commercial flight to view the Aurora out of New Zealand, and I have to tell you it was an amazing experience! A huge thanks has to go to Ian Griffin @portobellopictures for coming up with this idea in the first place and then going through with it and making it a reality. I also gave an in-flight astrophotography workshop, which I believe hasn’t been done before, and then it was time to sit back and enjoy the aurora out the window.
The time-lapse from inside the cabin was certainly the first motion controlled time-lapse I’ve shot on a plane using a @SYRP_ Genie Mini, and then I managed to shoot a 2 hour time-lapse of the aurora through the window. The footage is a like more shakey than I had hoped for, but it’s not an easy feat getting stable shots from a tripod in an airplane, but I am just really stoked to have had this incredible experience!
