Dylan Walton

Charmouth, dorset, UK

i used just a unmodified canon 350D piggy back mounted to the top of my telescope, using just a ra motor i was able to take images over 30 seconds long, in fact the longest shot i took was 4 minutes and i was going to take my chances with ten, though my camera equipment was running low on battery life

This is my first ever shot of the milky way galaxy! having visited a dark spot in the uk i thought id take my chances photographing the beautiful cloud through our clear sky.
6 images all took at iso 1600 with a standard kit lense (f3.5) all images consist fro 30 seconds to 4 mins.
