Starry, starry, cloudy night

Many thanks to Gareth Watson, from London Camera Exchange (LCE), Worcester for an excellent presentation on night sky photography.

Sadly the weather didn't play ball, however, all was not lost and the resourceful Gareth had devised his own 'Plan B' which, although can't compete with the real thing, gave BPC Members the opportunity to put some extreme camera settings into play and have a go.

So, with a set up of a trusty tripod and an LED torch playing the starring role, Birlingham Village Hall was plunged into darkness and the members set to work.

Congratulation to everyone who rose to the challenge, not an easy challenge, and thanks to Tony for sending in the two images below, which were taken in a room which was in total darkness!

f1.6, ISO 1250 and shutter speed of 10 sec
