Taken in Ballykelly at about 0042 hrs BST – there were no NLCs and I decided to turn the camera up to the zenith.
Its the best Milky Way that Ive ever taken – there is a standard way to do this to demonstrate the quality of your site – a 20 second exposure at ISO 3200 – I tried this once before in my back garden in the town of Limavady and ended up with an orange mess.
You can see the light pollution at the mid left from Limavady caught in a passing cloud.
Canon 5D II with 14mm f2.8L II lens, 20 second exposure at ISO 3200.
I would love to claim that the bright streak is a Perseid meteor – I did see one beautiful orange example tonight, streaking across the sky – but this is just a satellite – it is just too uniform unfortunately 😦
The satellite is SL 14 R/B – Russian.
