  6. Its just works well with the figure, without it i dont think it works.
  7. i spent a few hours last week at Penmon point waiting for lady Aurora as it seemed to kicking off the night before. sadly the BZ was north most of the night and very little happened and the shot i got with the Aurora in was very week. so this is the best i managed from that night while waiting for the clouds to clear.

  20. I ventured to Jodrell bank radio telescope on Wednesday night for a shot i recently though about. i asked a few local friends who are relatively new to astro work if they would like to join me for some 1-2-1 on taking star trails. albeit its not the darkest of places but the location felt right to ask them to come along. it was a great few hours out with friends and teaching them about the night sky. i also got to show them how easy it was to take a shot of M31. i practically had to pick up all three jaws when the image came on the back of the camera haha. This has tested my cloning skills, every shot had a plane trail in. its taken two days to clone them out of 65 images. then i had to take out the dust spots. ( mirror-less rules ! ) overall im pretty happy with this image. Danny Galactic Signal by Danny Kenealy, on Flickr
  21. yeah boys!!!! that 2nd shot the auroa is called steve https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Steve_(atmospheric_phenomenon)
  22. i ventured out last light to the lakes, hoping the solar wind would hit early and maybe catch some aurora. Sadly not so i just had a few hours at castlerigg stone circle there was some moisture in the air so the LP from Keswick was quite intrusive.
  23. sorry i cant make this year
