Milkyway over Inverdoorn

By sherlob    

Ok so I'm a little late in posting this 1/52 image, but having just returned from South Africa earlier this PM I need to ask your forgiveness. Whilst I could have posted images captured on a mobile, this wouldn't really have resulted in the quality of image I was hoping to maintain throughout the project, and importantly, I didn't want to advertise that I was away from home.

Inverdoorn is a private game reserve about 3hrs drive from Cape Town. Sadly, Cape Town doesn't really have any true safari parks anymore - only managed game reserves which utilise tourism to enable their conservation based activities. The holiday my wife and I have just experienced was simply out of this world, so for me this - from the many images I took whilst their seemed a fitting image for the 1/52.

I'll hopefully post 16/52 tomorrow...

All the best,


(PS. This is my first go at astrophotography so critique is welcomed)

Excellent first effort, Adam, looks like a marvellously clear night sky.
