Thread: Really, really dark places in SG to shoot stars

    Default Really, really dark places in SG to shoot stars

    Hey guys,

    Anyone has suggestions for really dark locations in Singapore to shoot the stars?

    I'm doing a timelapse, and hope I could insert a scene of the night sky rotating around the horizon.

    Most of the location in SG has so much light pollution its hard to get the stars to really stand out of the night sky.

    So... any suggestions for locations to shoot stars?

    The southern islands are as dark as it can get in Singapore even then light pollution is still very much evident in the night sky. Most amateur astronomers from SingAstro (Singapore Astronomy) and TASOS (The Astronomical Society of Singapore) organises observation sessions to Mersing at the eastern seaboard of Johor, Malaysia instead.

    This is how the night sky looks like from one of the clearest and darkest sky on earth.

    Sad to say, shooting star trails is not really possible in SG. Try Australia.

    Taman Negara has VERY nice stars.
    Every few seconds you'll get to see a shooting star, too.
