Glen Affrric and the Milky Way

Photo Information
Well the last trip of the year yielded a few nice images and also taught me a few lessons

Lesson 1: Trying to focus in complete darkness without a hard infinity stop is pot luck, of course I should have taken an infinity shot in daylight and taped the lens
Lesson 2: Astrotracer moves mountains
Lesson 3: Your red head light is recorded
Lesson 4: Remenber to bring the coffee and biscuits

Still looks good to me - and the mountains don't look to bad at this size!

Fantastic anyway.

You can get around this by super imposing the still portion of the mountains onto your astrotracer photo, however this is a right bit of work in photoshop.

Thanks for all the comments, appreciated.

Thanks Alf, it looks OK at this size but wouldn't get a pass any bigger

Good series of 'discoveries' - thanks for those. The result looks wonderful nevertheless.
