A Little Night-Time Photography

My camera is pretty basic and it’s nearly five years old (probably due a replacement) but I’ve had a try at taking some pics of the night sky. Yesterday was comparitively clear and I was inspired 🙂

 

The light pollution is pretty clear in this one with the slightly orange horizon, I’m surrounded with well lit main-roads so on a cloudy night the whole sky often goes orange.

 

The main stars of Orion are just visible in this one. They look a little double but that was because I was fighting my flimsy tripod. It did quite well really 🙂 You can even see a faint smudge where the Orion nebula should be.
