  1. Hi Adam Thank you. I think they were 20s at f4 and iso 3200... ...taken every 22s. I am very pleased with it!! Paul
  2. Early morning 30th October. One to NW past Stac Pollaidh, other to SE. Each Canon 6D MkII, Samyang 14mm, f4, 30s, iso3200. Dark, with weirdly soft seeing/haze. Hope colour balance looks okay.

  4. I like that the colour is *not* overpowering. All personal taste. Great depth. Paul

  7. Tricky! I've annotated a copy with a line where the slanting oval of the gegenschein is 'visible'. Shows best on thumbnail images!? Canon 6D MkII Samyang 14mm at f5 and iso3200 2x30s Lightromm, stacked and Photoshop. Can you see it? Paul.
  8. Single 30s for Milky Way, 120s foreground. Canon 6D MkII, Samyang 14mm. Lightroom and Photoshop. 21st October. Paul. P.S. Click into the image for best view.
  9. Hi Grant Thank you for all your time on this. I suggest going down to seasonal challenges, four a year. Hopefully the range of entrants would be broader. Limit the number of submissions per entrant if the number to judge gets too high. Cheers Paul
  10. Looks good on my phone... ...single 30s for Milky Way, 120s foreground. Canon 6D MkII, Samyang 14mm. Lightroom and Photoshop. Last night. Paul. Edit - easier to see if you click into the image.
  11. ...wait for it. BTW, this does run smoothly when the various bits of the Interweb work correctly...
  12. I observed the Bubble many times when I had an 18" Obsession. Usually from mag. 6.5 skies. Very, very rarely did I get a 'bubble', most of the time just a short arc. This has charts for the painstaking starhopping required https://ned.ipac.caltech.edu/level5/ANDROMEDA_Atlas/frames.html Another useful link. Think I found about 2 dozen. Was a bit obsessive though https://www.astronomy-mall.com/Adventures.In.Deep.Space/gcm31.htm Good hunting! Cheers Paul
  13. Ah yes!! Remember it well. I got Picture of the Month in Sky @ Night magazine! A 4 pane mosaic of the Milky Way with the comet and M31. All by luck. I had a trip planned to Tenerife and some images in mind. One composition was of the highest, least light polluted part of the sky...and suddenly, just before my trip Holmes burst onto the scene The printed version seemed to lose loads of the fainter star though. Wish I could find the image, you'll just have to trust me Cheers Paul
  14. Single 30s with 14mm Samyang a couple of nights later. Light pollution gradients
  15. Smooth image. Nice. Is the horizon sloping or just an illusion? I've some of my own that look 'wrong' no matter what I do and drive me to distraction. Cheers Paul PS My cousin hoped to get that composition last week but the weather and tide didn't play ball.
  16. ...about an hours worth of clear last night. was basking in the return of something like darkness. Just sat and looked up, wonderful to lose myself in the night sky again. Had my new Canon 6D MkII on a tripod and took a series of 20s exposures with a Sigma 24mm lens. Caught one Perseid and stacked 3 images free of satellite trails.
  17. Nice one! I have a similar composition in mind, assuming the sky clears before the sunflowers are past their best... ...thank you. Paul
  18. Early hours of 15th July. An attempt to get a naturally lit foreground for a NLC display. Above Reeth in Swaledale. Canon 6D MkII, Sigma 24mm. Lightroom, Photoshop...
  19. Hi The brightest star visible in the images is Capella. So North to Northeast. Cheers Paul
  20. Noctilucent Clouds - mix of stills and time lapse. Canon 7D MkII & 6D MkII Samyang 14mm Sigma 16mm Sigma 24mm Canon 200mm. Lightroom and VSDC. Music - Lee Rosevere.
  21. Mashup of images and time lapse from the display last Friday. Looking at the satellite images there could be better to come! Music by Lee Rosevere.
  22. Off the beaten track. Awesome NLC display early doors June 21st. Time lapse and some stills. Canon 6D MkII Samyang 14mm Canon 7D MkII Samyang 16mm. Cheers Paul.
  23. Just the type of session I love! Remember targets in Ophiuchus and Serpens, then all the way along the Milky Way. Putting effort into the dark nebulae will reap rewards on the bright objects. Not sure about OIII though. UHC may give a more pleasing view if you have the option. Nice to plan ahead. Cheers Paul.
  24. Thank you Dave. Downbeat matched my tired mood I think Castle Bolton has a hill behind that would hide a key part of the sky, will look at some contours... ...I have a tarn in mind if there is no wind. Cheers Paul
