A reminder of what dark skies look like

Recommended Posts

As most of us are, I am longing for the return of astronomical darkness. So here is a photo taken from Kielder in Nothumberland this February, just to remind us.

beautiful and probably 30+ degrees colder than presently, I would happily swap the warm for those skies!

I do miss those cold dark nights.

I only started astrophotography last year with my a6000 and a samyang 12mm lens but loved the results. Bought a scope this year mainly for my wife, but for me too.

Waiting for those dark nights as sadly our jobs don't allow mega late stayups.

Got some amazing results in Langdale this year (amazing to us , but, probably not to you more experienced guys)

Were you on holiday or do you live in Cumbria?

On holiday. We're only a couple of hours drive away so try to get to Langdale at least 5-6 times a years.
