  • 3.Scorpius NLowndes.jpg

    This wider field image shows the area where the centre of our Milky Way Galaxy is, with Scorpius and Sagittarius right in the middle and all the dark dust lanes of gas and stars. This is only one 15-minute image where the camera did the auto dark frame. I used a Canon 40D camera with a Canon 24-85mm lens set at 24mm, ISO 800 and lens set at f3.5. The camera was mounted on top of my tracking telescope in my Stardust Observatory at Leyburn.

  • South Celestial Pole NLowndes.jpg

    ~ South Celestial Pole Startrail ~ A wide field view of the south polar area of the sky to capture the rotation of the stars…but in fact, it’s the Earth rotating under the heavens that causes these beautiful concentric star trails. Image taken with a Canon DSLR camera and an 18-55mm lens set at 18mm, exposure time was for 50 minutes with ISO 400 and aperture f3.5.

  • 4.Rho Ophiuchus NLowndes.jpg

    The magnificent gaseous area around the brilliant star Antares in Scorpius, long exposure images show up the overwhelming field of stars and dark dust lanes near the centre of our Milky Way Galaxy. My image was taken with a Canon 40D camera and a Canon f2.8 70-200mm lens set at 135mm @ f3.5. Camera was mounted on a tracking telescope in my Stardust Observatory at Leyburn. Exposures were 10x5 minute subs and 10x5 minute darks, and then stacked in DSS (Deep Sky Stacker) and processed PS CS4.
