Galloway Star Party
« on: 18:04:08, 26 November, 2014 »
Got back from Galloway star party on Monday night after a crystal clear night with a huge bright milky way. Met loads of knowledgeable and very friendly people. Will post a couple of pics taken there.

Very good indeed for only 30 minutes. Focus was a little off I suspect.
