A little later at 6.35pm the Constellation of Orion was also following with still the pretty colours of purple and pink in the twilight sky.
I have finally made it out to my Stardust Observatory for the May new Moon long weekend after many months of flooding rain here in Queensland. I’ll post more images if I’m lucky enough to get a couple of clear nights of observing :-)
These two Images were taken with a Canon 70D camera and a 28-400mm lens on a camera tripod; the Hyades image was an exposure of 6 seconds and ISO640. The Orion image was an exposure time of 8 seconds and ISO2500; both are just a single image.
