Sky at Night - markhumpage
May 18_19 2011. Another clear night, although I had to wait till 2300hrs for the cloud to clear out. Not a bad result considering an almost full 'Milk' moon was directly behind. Caught a cracking meteor top (9 o clock). Camera was left out at 2300hrs all night and morning. I stacked approx 750 images for this shot, although it would have been more if I'd used my dew shield. Air temps dipped down to about 6C and touched the dewpoint temp, resulting in a sopping wet camera from approx 0300hrs on. Captured with Oly E5 & 7-14mm.
