Looks like a nice site with clear views. Glad to see you wrapped up well. I love the long cold nights for imaging, even if the moon is out.

Well the Moon at least made for the fantastic lighting in your picture! :-)

It was a bit parky - got through a huge flask of hot tea and a huge amount of chocolate to keep warm :) It's a nice site a mile north of the village where I live; it's a caravan site during the summer months and the owners sons are in my boys class at school so it all works out rather well...

That'll be me... I set up a DSLR (I was going to do a timelapse but never got round to it) and left it running for 20 images... in 19 of them I looked pretty gruesome - blurred usually. In one I looked like I could stay still!
