An Amazing Night at Three Cliffs

Three Cliffs Bay with Sirius and Airglow

Last night I had an Astrophotography Workshop at Three Cliffs Bay. After almost cancelling because it was cloudy and raining when we met, we spent a good few hours out on the cliffs taking photos before going back to the cars.

However, I recently bought a new 10 stop ND filter which reduces the amount of light that goes into the lens by 10 stops. It means that an exposure that would normally be 1/60s becomes somewhere around 30 seconds. Here are the results ……
