I had some spare time last night, or more that there was nothing watchable on tv, so I decided to try my hand at some astro-photography.
The Milky Way is almost directly over head of our house and we are blessed with very little light pollution.
What I am not blessed with is a wide angle lens not afflicted with lens creep.
The image here is the result of the lens zooming in, caused by the weight of the front element pushing itself down.
Well, not the intended shot, but it is pretty cool and loads more interesting than what I would have got otherwise.
