Sydney has a perfectly good observatory near Circular Quay, but I wasn’t sure how good anything would look up there. You can’t get real close to the building itself, and the view is kinda… touristy. Not that that’s bad, but the sky wasn’t actually clear so we couldn’t run with the plan of shooting actual night sky.
We also didn’t have a telescope to use for a prop. Undeterred, I set about figuring out how to make one that’d look passable. If you squint you sorta can’t tell that it’s just two Pringles tubes covered in paper and gaffer tape! (construction photos at the bottom) 😀
