Whiskey and Astrotography

Dear Amy

So I've discovered something in the past two weeks. I am heavily susceptible to whiskey...I don't know why but it just has a bad effect on me (such as forgetting two/three hours of your life)...but hey, that's not going to stop me drinking it.

Tonight, Canterbury surprisingly had clear skies so having waited a few weeks for this, I grabbed my tripod and camera to try my hand at Astrotography (which is totally a word even if there is a funny red line under it...). I'm happy with one or two photos but the stars weren't very giving even at 1am but I made the most of it for my first shot at it (see what I did there....?)

Bare in mind these are unedited and my first ever try at photos of stars, and undoubtedly Blogger is going to make them look all low-res. Also a 30 second limit on open shutter time is way too short for anything fancy and it was freeeeezing!

I tried getting some constellations like Orion or Cassiopeia but they were really awkward to get what with light pollution and buildings (Orion was behind the building in the bottom photo).

Looking forward to seeing you at Hammertime, hopefully there will be a team of Pirates....
