61/365 Astrophotography with a phone

There’s a point in my walk, where I can leave the normal pavement and go only 3 or 4 yards to one side, where the spot is sheltered from street lights. There is still ambient light obviously, but as this picture shows, Orion & Sirius are quite clear. This is a 20 second exposure with the sensor set at ISO 50. I like that you can see the sword of Orion as individual objects. I’ll have another go.

It was a very pleasant walk, chilly at 7-8C. But no wind, so no wind chill as such. It was a bit frustrating that I would have to leave the waterfront about 20 minutes before the new Brittany Ferry the Galicia was due to enter the harbour for the first time. I believe it was on a shakedown cruise, no passengers. It would have been nice to be able to see her come in.

When I arrived at the end of the Haslar Marina Pier Wall there were a couple of anglers there. One of them had caught a 4lb Bass, Interesting to know that fish of that size come in to the harbour.

As usual, it was a very nice walk, and I’m glad I got out for it.

I just want to write, but I prefer to stay away from controversial topics like politics. I am happy to confess that at the moment, I am writing for me. If you enjoy my writings, and I hope you do then that is all the better.
