  1. Taken in Scarborough, North Yorkshire on 7th January 2018. Star Trails image taken in my backyard using an iPhone SE, NightCap app, mounted on tripod with smartphone attachment. My house ('Our Place' In The Solar System, get it?!) is to the left of the image to give a sense of scale. Exposure was around 3.5 house with the one, final image then edited on the iPhone using the Photoshop app to darken the sky and bring out colour in the star trails. Again, an image that shows those on a budget what can be achieved using only an iPhone and readily available, easy to use apps.
  2. Taken in Scarborough, North Yorkshire on 16 December 2017. My main aim with this image was to show those just starting out in the world of astrophotography what can be achieved on a budget with simple and affordable equipment. Using my iPhone and the NightCap app set to Star Trails mode I captured this as one image over a period of four hours (hence the number of airplane trails!). I then edited the image on my iPhone using the Snapseed app to darken the sky and bring out some colour in the star trails. I was very pleased with the outcome given that all of this was achieved using only an iPhone and readily available, easy to use apps.
