Had some super dark skies on a holiday a few years back. One of those times I really wished I had a scope and the ability to track the sky. Had some fun though and the milky way was stunning!

Thanks James and Pete,


Have to say I wished I'd had a scope and tracking especially as they are quite grainy at 3200ISO to keep the exposure time down.

This version of a similar piece of sky was taken a couple of days before. Pete, you prompted me to have a look again at what is actually visible on this (Bit of scanning using Stellarium Required for me to remind myself what DSO are on here...) They are a little clearer on this one even though it doesn't cover quite as much sky.

[Edit: Grammar and typos!]



Lagoon Nebula

Triffid Nebula


Sagitarius Star Cluster

Omega Nebula

and Eagle Nebula


Are all quite visible on there. I was really happy to have caught them as I don't think they are easy to catch in the UK unless you have a really dark site and a good view of the horizon.


I hope to photograph these again sometime when I get fixed up with a scope and mount!
