Milky Way from Mevagissey, Cornwall

Recommended Posts

Got a few days away from home for the first time in a long time and naturally took a camera and tripod... attached is a single 30 second shot from a time-lapse taken from Mevagissey in Cornwall, looking to the south east over Chapel Point.

This is the first time I've ever done a time-lapse sitting directly underneath an operating (albeit small) lighthouse and LED lights. There wasn't anywhere I could go that avoided the light but on the plus side it's illuminated the houses a mile or so away on Chapel Point. Hopefully, one day I'll get the time-lapse put together but I take, on average, about 22 months to do one and staying up till 4am to get the Milky Way core will leave me tired for days.. 🙄

30 second shot, taken with a Canon R6, 28mm Sigma @ f1.4 ISO3200
