Ari Rex, Canberra is a Wonderland for Astrophotography. (People and Portrait 2017)

Canberra is one of the best places in Australia for astrophotography and stargazing. It has very low humidity and less light pollution compared to other Australian cities. Its inland location and height above sea level cause its dry climate to be an ideal place for photographing the Milky Way, getting sharp and pinpoint images of the stars. The first two images are taken within the city and the other two about 30min away from the city.

Images have been resized for web display, which may cause some loss of image quality. Note: Original high-resolution images are used for judging.
