Star Gazing.

Last night, for the penultimate image for my 365 Project, me and a friend went out to play with fire. However after i peeled an inch long piece of skin off of my finger, we abandon that and went in search of some light trails. After that we had a pop at some star photography.


Was the first time either of us had done it and all in all we're pleased with the results.

These two old grain bins and light some pollution provide an interesting foreground to the starry background, in whihc can clearly be seen the Constellation known as the plough or Big Dipper.

The Plough,is an asterism of seven stars recognized as a distinct grouping in many cultures. These stars are the brightest of the formal constellation Ursa Major; six of them are second magnitude stars, while only Megrez (δ) is of third magnitude. The North Star (Polaris), the current northern pole star on Earth, can be located by extending an imaginary line from Merak (β) through Dubhe (α). Polaris is part of the "Little Dipper", Ursa Minor.

Most of the Ursa Major (Great Bear) constellation is visible too, but i think the legs are missing, thinking i may have a pop at getting the full constellation at some point, probably somewhere with less light pollution.
