Some info to help you plan:
Weather forecast (as at Wed 7/5/14) Partly cloudy. Isolated showers contracting to the coast during the evening. Winds south to southeasterly 15 to 20 km/h tending east to southeasterly and becoming light during the day. Overnight temperatures falling to between 10 and 15 with daytime temperatures reaching the low to mid 20s.
Sunset 17:10 @289.6° Moon rise 14:08hrs @ 90.1° Moonset 01:41 @272.4°
Moon Phase – Waxing Gibbous 76.3%
In short we will have a high moon about 3/4 full for the night – we’ll still be able to get star trails but not as numerous as some shots you have seen. The positive side is that the moon allows you to see more of the landscape.
