  1. Very nicely done!! Deep with great range and not overblown. Lovely image Paul As other noted 'natural'.
  2. Yes, light pollution always 'present' It needs the wider public to know about the problem and then agree to change what happens at night with lighting... ...Paul
  3. Added another pass on the end of the video from subsequent evening....

  5. These groups plus a sequence of more spaced objects made for 90 minutes of despair... ...best viewed full screen for full impact. Paul.
  6. Lovely descriptions Dave! I may quote them when I next do a talk. Gives a great perspective. I would prefer a bit more foreground in the B&W image but the mosaic render didn't give me enough to play with. Maybe I can convince people that its from a drone !! Thanks. Paul
  7. Tried just the top 2 rows of the mosaic and a B&W presentation. I quite like it another that seems better when you click into the image... Paul
  8. Crop from 9 pane mosaic. Untracked 15s exposures. Canon 6D MkII, Sigma 24mm. LR, PS and ICE. Quite a few flaws but okay at reading distance. Much sharper when you click into the image!! Cheers, Paul.
