    Thanks :D I went to get a pic of the plough but our church was all lit up so for once there was a bit of light pollution , night cap did a great job ! Tried taking the pic with other apps and just the native cam but the shots were all black !

    fabulous Vix, without sounding like a complete nerd, and it's hard for me, have you got the Starwalk app? It's not a photo app but an astrology one and if you hold up in the same position, it will tell you all the names for those stars and planets. It's really cool, Issy would love it too.

    I've got similar one taken with my iPhone through the view finder of an old Nikon FT. On Instagram. I used 645 Pro for the original, I think.

    Holy smoke, Vix--that's fanDAMtastic!

    I'm a huge cosmology and astronomy buff, and Orion is one of my favorite constellations.

    Not only is its Orion-ness a beauty, but your photograph works really well on a formal/aesthetic level (that compo, for one)!

    Nick

    p.s. Betelgeuse (the red giant in Orion's top left corner) is so huge that if you filled it with Earth-sized spheres, at 100 per second, it would take over 30,000 years to fill. Now...that's big!

    Indeed! The whole reason I read about stuff like that is for that brain stttrrrrrretttccch. The gray jello never gets all the way around things (because they're just too immense, on so many levels), but it's the process. Just like most everything else, too! :)

    Me neither ! There is no light pollution where I live and I had been toying with nightcap ! I did several shots using different apps but nightcap tho tiny still really got it , I ensured the phone was balanced on a stationary object , my garden fence and hey presto :D thanks :D
