When the shadowed moon finally had risen above the neighbours ceiling the first rays of sunlight already reached it in the west.

Excellen photot!! I actually prefer the fact that there's variation in colour... It's a more interesting look, IMHO.

Beautiful shot. Lucky You, after a long spell of dry weather and cloudless skies we had total cloud cover and heavy rain.

Very nice. You were lucky, only clouds were visible in the UK. Perfect timing for the heatwave to end.

Great shot. Very 3-D - it is just hanging against a background of stars.

Nice, just curious how you held such a sharp edge with a one second exposure.

I'm guessing Astrotracer.
Although on second thoughts Astrotracer doesn't go down to 1 second.

I had the telescope (fl 910mm) riding on a german equatorial tracking mount (Skywatcher EQ6-R).
