Starry night…

_ISK8520

You can clearly see the Milky way on the right side of the image, and if you are unlike my you will also notice the constellation Scorpio on the same side.

This is a 15 sec exposure at f2.8. camera was set up on a telescope tracking mount “A device the compensates for the movement of the earth relative to the sky” keeping the camera pointing on the same direction of the sky.

I was out there trying to capture some star trails, as we were about to leave I placed my camera on my brother’s telescope mount and took a few shoots.

It was a great night out with my brother. though we had planned to only stay for 2 hours we ended up leaving the location just before sunrise.

This image was set up by my brother Hilmi Al-Kindy, you can find some of his work here http://www.astrobin.com/users/Hilmi/
