While I was taking pictures of the moon, I switched to my 6mm fisheye lens for some long exposure shots. I assume the blue planet is Uranus NE At 9 o’clock. Somewhere between 9:10 and 9:15 I assume lens flare. So cool. Now I want to do more shots. You star guys will know exactly where I was looking. I am in central Ontario. South side Lake Simcoe. I would love to think I found something cool beyond Neptune. But that fisheye lens probably flares like crazy. πŸ™‚ Still love this picture though.omg


    1. Thanks! I do have a lake but the three neighboring towns are quite large and light is hard to escape. My brother has a property 8 acres with an acre pond in some of the highest elevations in Ontario. 2 and a half hours out of the city I look forward to some milky-way shots out there next June. For now I will just practice.


      1. Actually its Dundalk . North of Shelburne Or technically Flesherton or in betwee the two. I have family in Bobcaygeon Buckhorn area. Nice and dark up there. We are going to Peterborough next month to the park they had all the free concerts this summer.

  1. Nice! The bright stars at the top are the Summer Triangle, with the Milky Way cutting through it. Top is Vega (next to the little parallelogram, this is constellation Lyra), below is Deneb (tail of Cygnus, the swan – forms a nice cross, the line of three stars nearby are the crossbar), and the one to right is Altair (in Aquila, the eagle). Bottom right you can see the great square of Pegasus. Uranus probably not in this shot, it should be really low center-ish, and not that prominent, but if it’s not behind a tree I’m sure this picked it up! πŸ™‚
