Sky at Night - markhumpage
May 16/17 2010. Another historic capture. Airspace was again closed overnight because of the volcanic ash problems across much of the UK. Just enough time to get an all night startrail. Captured with Olympus E3, 12-60mm lens. 12mm focal length, F2.8, 15s exposures from 2200hrs on 16th to 0400hrs on 17th. About 1000 images stacked to produce the final image. Slight cloud cover adding to the eerie effect.
