Shooting Stars

Shooting stars is not something I have attempted much in the past but this time of year in our southern skies is a great time to capture the milky way and southern cross very high across our skies.

Well I've been waiting for a time when I can get out into the country away from city lights to try it out but the weather hasn't been very cooperative. The other night I noticed we had a perfectly clear sky so urban lights and all I decided to give it a go. I was amazed at how many stars I could capture even with street lights so close.

Here is the sky taken from my yard a few nights ago. Not brilliant I know but I can't wait now to go further out away from the city lights.

I have really been inspired by Phil Hart's book "Shooting Stars" which is an excellent resource in which Phil shares his knowledge on how, when and where to capture our skies.
