Environment Inspiration Nature Nightscapes Serenity

बस यूँही…….

The night skies and the window to the universe that they offer has always fascinated me. Last night was a unique opportunity. Clear skies, a light breeze, the moon not yet risen and the easily identifiable Orion overhead.
My first serious attempt at astrophotography was with my mobile phone. Manual settings, a selfie stick doubling up as a tripod and a 5 second exposure gave me a great snapshot of the skies and it’s constellations. I was particularly happy I could identify each of the stars of Orion separately and get Sirius in the same frame as well. Very pleasing to see Betelgeuse coming through with its distinctive red hues.

Fascinating! It is as though the distant stars could see you trying to identify and capture them in your camera and they all smiled together. Maybe they heard you saying “cheese” to them.
