Recommended Posts

Sunday 30th June.

NLCs started appearing as the skies cleared around 1.45am.

Grabbed gear and headed off around 2.15am to the same location as last two sessions. Another 90 shots taken!

Nikon D3 and Nikkor AF-S 70-200mm f/2.8G ED VR II, tripod mounted, cable release and mirror lock function.

Lightly processed in Adobe Lightroom and (where required), stitched shots together in Photoshop CC2017

Taken from north Lichfield (Staffordshire).

Clicking the pictures should open the hi-res images.

Panoramic 1 - 7 shots. ISO 200, 2.5 sec, f/2.8, 70mm, 2.56am. Note over in the far right the Pleiades.

Started to pack away just as 'Mr Blackbird' started to sing - the dawn chorus broke.... then noticed a beautiful sight over in the East, switched back to the Nikkor AF-S 70-200mm f/2.8G ED VR II and added the TC-14EII 1.4x

A 7% Crescent Moon.

Single shot - ISO 200, 0.8 sec, f/4, 280mm, 3.28am
