38/52 Magpie Mine

By sherlob    
A week late again - software glitches (still not sorted) and a lack of opportunity to access the computer. Still this has turned out better than expected. The forecast was for clear skies, but on arrival I could see a bank of cloud to the west with very high cloud extending ahead of the front. I think it likely that it is this very high cloud that has led to the light pollution. Not one for the astrophotography purists, but I like the aesthetic regardless. This is my first astro shoot since last year - poor windows in the weather when I was free to go out, and lockdown have both played their role. I am hoping to do more this autumn and winter - the Milky Way core won't be visible for much longer, but still there is plenty of stars to see.

Last weeks image will hopefully be processed and posted tomorrow bringing me up to date. The challenge will then be getting in a shoot this week...

Converging to commune with the sky. This is about our world, our view of the heavens.

Excellent idea to use the tall chimney and one remaining wall as vertical lead-ins, Adam.

What a spot for nightscapes. A lovely image.

Splendid ! Perhaps not the greatest of astro photos, but a superb composition with the old mine buildings as foreground. Love it !

Cracking location and composition for an astro shot.
