I kept an eye out of the study window whilst I was writing up my final project. The moon looked shrouded in Coulds and there weren't any obvious clear spots in the sky so I didn't bother. Once this uni work is out the way I'll spend a bit more time looking for some decent photo opportunities.
Cheers. I'll take some test shots to get the exposure/aperture etc correct first. I guess what I'm asking is - is there a rough distance you have to be from a settlement to get a good sky view or is it all geographical? I'm prepared to travel say an hour each way for a decent location (I have to lea...
Does anyone have any suggestions for somewhere to try to get some good shots of this from? I'll need somewhere with minimal light pollution of any kind. I'm hoping to get a shot or two like this:- http://newsimg.bbc.co.uk/media/images/46186000/jpg/_46186687_perseid_spl_226.jpg

I only found out about this at about 18:30 and there was too much cloud to see by then, but I did see it driving home the next night. Here's a couple of the shots I took. Any post capture processing tips would be gratefully received. As the light was fading.... http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3267/30...
