Sky at Night - markhumpage
Made a few nationals with this one. Volcanic ash still carpeting the UK and most of EU from the fallout and eruption of Eyjafjallajokull in Iceland. Flights continue to be grounded across the entire UK. Not all bad news ;-) Good opportunity for clutter free star trails. Captured on the evening/early hours of April 16/17th. 7 hrs of continuous 15s exposures, stacked. Note the purply tone and swollen light pollution, all compounded by the volcanic ash. Also a meteor top right :-) Captured with Olympus E3, 7-14mm SWD lens.
