First attempt at Astro photography


Down in Cornwall with Lizzie staying with our friends artist Rebecca Jewell and artist and fellow photographer Simon Jewell. They live in the beautiful lizard peninsula and that week we were blessed with completely clear sky's and a new moon which is important to take photos of the night sky so l have read, so we are in luck. So at 10.30pm we head out to the beach at church cove which is nearby. It so dark when we get there and to honest without Simon I would have gone home ( don't judge me it was a bit scary especially with the church overlooking the beach) So my set up was a Nikon d810 with the Nikon 14-24 2.8 tripod and iPhone for it's torch and StarTracker app which is brilliant. Settings 14mm 20secs shutter speed ISO 400 focus on infinity. It was a wonderful experience made you feel very small and in wonder of the greater universe that we are a small part of.
