  1. Hi Dave The current format takes the audience through what can be seen through the 4 seasons. Brief explanation as to why this changes, earth's orbit, location in Milky Way... I use a combination of stills and time lapse many with reference points to the northern Yorkshire Dales where I live. Also a dark skies and light pollution pitch. This is after a wider field vid showing the onset of darkness and stars coming out over our village (though it needs a better version). I then go onto the seasons finishing with the current at the date of the talk. Cheers. Paul
  2. Noting the other BoV panorama... ...I thought I'd post this. It is now part of a 'Swaledale Night Sky' presentation that I do to various audiences. Taken in April. Canon 6D MkII, Sigma 24mm. Using 4K time lapse feature with fixed exposure, ISO & aperture settings. VSDC for editing. There is audio.
  3. Very, very nice! Love it. The foreground works well without detracting from the Milky Way. One I really wish that I had taken. Excellent! Paul
  4. Being a deep sky visual type of astronomer I love the 1st and 2nd place images. I also bought a Nodal Ninja after seeing the panorama! Thank you to all involved. Paul
  5. Late evening average SQM for Keld this March - 21.54. Seems to get another 1 to 2 darker later in the night... ...probably September for next proper opportunity though.
  6. Nooo, don't. :) It looks much more natural without 'artificial' light painting. I was very disappointed with the LP in the Lake District when I stayed in March. You silhouetted the church nicely :) Looked a worthwhile trip! Paul
  7. This. I'll have to find another cause for my dizziness... ...cheers Paul
  8. To my eye, that bright but less colour. I have had many years of looking at faint nebulous astronomical objects though...
  9. First light this evening, Canon 6D MkII and Samyang 14mm, at f2.8, 6s and iso1600. processed in Lightroom.
  10. Yes, they do demonstrate the mental gymnastics that are gone through to achieve a workable model e.g. speed of light being an average... ...I occasionally have fleeting moments of understanding, then seems irretrievable.
  11. If you have a good read of Richard Feynman's QED series of lectures you will note Feynman diagrams that have photons 'arriving' after they have been 'emitted' i.e. 'travelling backwards in time...
  12. I would have thought that they would go in the most appropriate section. Most likely Deep Sky, Wide field or Reports. As long as the title starts with 'Night Vision'..? Cheers
  13. Something to look at during the winds and rains. Single frame from a time lapse taken last month. The end of the winter constellations from Swaledale. Canon 7D MkII, Samyang 16mm. 8s @iso1600 and f2. Cheers Paul
