When you have what is ascribed to be ‘the most expensive man-made object ever’ flying through the sky at 4.7 miles per second, the boffins at NASA like to know exactly where it is, and where its trajectory will take it at any moment in time. Using this information, I was able to map and time my photograph down to the second, weeks in advance.
240 second exposure
From a technical and practical angle, probably the hardest image.
300 miles north of Glasgow, on a northern peninsula on the Isle Of Lewis, is a now-automated lighthouse. 40 minutes drive from Stornoway and a hilly 10 minute hike up to a good vantage point, when the lighthouse is dormant the light pollution is virtually nil.
ISO 10,000, f/2.8, 5 & 25 sec exposures blended
Tiumpan Head Lighthouse & Milky Way
A planned experiment into stacking multiple exposures.
Coming towards Kettering from the westward M6, the wind turbines signify that you are but 10 minutes from home. I waited until the soft evening light was shining, and with a bit of post-processing in Photoshop, was able to combine 25 exposures into this 1.
