Orion’s Sword, an asterism ‘hanging’ off the hunter’s belt towards the centre of the Orion constellation. Identifiable by eye, detailed through binoculars and stunning with telescope / camera. Here are shown the the nebulae of the sword – the Running Man & the Orion Nebula (Messier 42 / 43). Note the dust & ionised gas […]
Spectral Divides – Sunset colours the sky above the Moelwyn hills; reflected in the foreground waters of Trawsfynydd and beneath its silhouetted footbridge.

Star trails (due to Earth’s planetary rotation), from just over 2.25 hours of exposure. The view is looking NW from our garden in N. Wales. Thanks to our dark skies, the location can be a good place for amateur astronomy. The stars appear to rotate around the celestial pole (upper right).
Dramatic clouds and crepuscular rays above a glacial moraine causeway, just off the welsh coast.
