  1. Martin The exposure times were 30sec in both cases, but looking at my notes I see that the Summer image was at ISO 3200 and not 6400 as previously stated.
  2. If you just happen to be at the top of Mount Kenya (altitude 5000m), this is the view of the Milky Way! My son trekked to near the summit in June and took these photos whilst "stepping out of his tent for a pee". Both night images taken using a Canon Rebel T2i (550D) with a 18-55mm lens @18mm, 30s, ISO 6400. The second image is a montage of a photo taken at sunrise combined with the night shot. The first image shows the Milky Way with along the ridge from (left to right) Kaus Australis to Rigil Kent.
  3. The Summer Milky Way image was taken on 3rd September 2013. Note faint M31 top centre. Canon 5D Mk II, Samyang 14mm, f2.8, ISO 6400. The Winter image, taken on 6th February 2013, shows a rather different Milky Way. Below and from left to right M42/Orion, Jupiter, M45, and far right, M31. Canon 24-105mm (@24mm), f4, ISO 25600 and a combination of two images stitched together to create a panorama. Both images taken from the same location in Herefordshire, UK.
  4. At last clear skies over Herefordshire. Comet taken at 22.00 using Celestron 6SE plus f6.3 focal reducer and Canon EOS 5D Mk II for 20sec at ISO 6400. A blue tint added to reflect how cold I was at the time! Sagittarius
