Nice one Greg.

You have caught the constellation main stars really well. Much better than my attempt. I have worked out how to open the aperture on the lens now though, must have another go if it stops raining!

Regards

Graeme

Thanks! I stacked it with sequator. That does help. So if you haven't tried it maybe give it a try.

Hi Greg.A very nice image of the constellation Leo (The Lion) with your Sony A7 with MC Rokkor-PF 1:17 55mm lens. Excellent contrast and nice stars. With Regulus so close to the ecliptic, we often see planetary conjunctions. Thanks for sharing your great work with us Greg, and keep at it.
