Taking a walk with the family along the costal walk at Seaton I found a good location for a night sky shot over looking Looe in Cornwall, so dropped the family of back at the car as darkness fell and went back to the spot and took a few photos, at the time I was totally unaware as to what the photos would come out like untill I put them onto my laptop then I was amazed that up to the top right the Beehive cluster M44 showed up.
