Zodiacal Light over Keld, North Yorkshire (edit new image plus Mercury)

Recommended Posts

Tonight.  Fortuitous meteor!  A bit of map reading found a location with no light pollution to the west.

Could do with a full frame DSLR and wider angle lens.  Canon 7D MkII, Samyang 16mm f2.

Hope it is apparent slanting up to the left towards Mars.


Edit - earlier image added showing Mercury on the horizon.

I tried to photograph Zodiacal Light from my dark sky site in Mid Wales. Unfortunately I chose to try the eastern apparition of this light (i.e. pre-dawn Autumn sky- October 2014) which is my least dark horizon- so contrast wasn't ideal.

The original image (15mm fisheye lens)- the bright 'star' is Jupiter & Mars is centre, bottom.


Approx FOV



Finally- a contast stretched version (or what it might have looked like if eastern horizon was darker!)
