Last Sunday fellow photographer Nathan and I ventured to Camber Sands in deepest darkest East Sussex. We were in search of the Milky way. The shortest night of the year probably wasn't the best time to take part in some astrophotography, but we waited in anticipation for night fall.
At around 11.30 the skies became dark enough to start shooting, we were lucky enough to have extremely clear skies with no air planes and little sea mist. The light pollution we experienced was from across the channel in France!
It was the first time out with my new star tracker, so a learning curve for me, It was a challenging shoot, but i'm quite pleased with the end results and i've learned loads!
