I managed to get down on the Lizard Peninsula in Cornwall and was amazed to get some decent skies on Thursday night. It coincided with the New Moon and the first decent view of the Milky Way Core. As always you get the story from me - Started the evening at the wonderful Earth Station at Goonhilly, love this shot of the dish with Orion and Pleiades overhead. Next stop was the wonderful church on the beach at Gunwalloe Church Cove dating back to the 13th Century... We then went for a walk down to the beach at Kynance Cove (not recommended with full winter kit & camera) Nice bit of airglow, looking South... Then we moved over to Kennack Sands - wonderful airglow in this one The core was supposed to be visible at 5:05 but took about 20 minutes to get high enough in the sky to be seen... A quick journey took us down the Lizard Point Finally a selfie, nearly at the end of the all-nighter - well worth the effort...
