Derby and District Astronomical Society

DDAS Observing Session - Flamsteed Observatory - Saturday 22nd November 2008

Chris Newsome took this image of Orion rising through the sodium lit sky glow of Derby from the Society's Flamsteed Observatory on the 22nd November 2008, with a Canon 400D camera, 18 mm lens, and 30 seconds at 800ASA.

At the DDAS observing session on Saturday 22nd November 2008 at Brailsford, Chris Newsome pointed a Canon 400D camera with 18mm lens at the Pole Star, set the exposure at 4 mins at 400ASA, to see what would be recorded! Are there really that many stars in the night sky?
