Newton Abbot sky at night

Last night was the first clear evening for weeks, and a full moon to boot! I went up to the fields behind my home to try out the long exposure and bulb exposure modes on my camera for the first time. I discovered two things: a full moon is far too bright and I had no chance to capture the milky way, and I’d need about a 400mm equivalent lens to fill the frame with the moon. The shot I got was taken at my maximum 100mm equivalent zoom. It’s not bad, but still lacks any real detail.

This sky-only image creates a kind of underwater feeling.

I think the long trail is caused by an aeroplane flying across during the 15 seconds the image was exposed.

Pictures, except the last one, taken with a Canon Powershot G7X Mark II. That was shot on my phone, a Oneplus One. Edits made in Lightroom 6 and Photoshop 2017.
