Night Time Observations…

The ability to sleep at night is something that I have always lacked. Particularly last night, where I was still awake by 2:30 am. Looking out the window, I could see a perfectly clear sky and decided to experiment.

I have recently purchased a new camera… with the possibility of it taking good images of night skys. Taking my tripod I bought on eBay, I quietly set everything up. Then I went into the garden.

My garden scares me at night. It’s quite big and dark… plenty of place for axe murderers and escaped psychopaths to hide. I was lucky, they must have hidden somewhere else.

I’m quite proud of myself really. The first time I’ve managed to take some star images that actually worked!! And without waking up anyone else in the house! And here they are…South East View

South East again...

Ok, they aren’t the best looking images in the world. But that isn’t my fault blame light pollution. At least it’s a nice purple. 🙂
