Jupiter in Taurus

IMG_0049Since it was a nice clear night, I thought I’d take the opportunity to have a play with the camera to see what images I could capture of the night sky.

The obvious candidate was Jupiter, shining very brightly in Taurus. I took several images at various ISO settings and exposure times, but this one seems to have come out the best. Alderberan (the red star) can also be seen.

Light pollution as ever a problem, but doubt that will change at least while I try and take photographs from home. Very tempting to take the camera to some lovely dark countryside locations. Could have done with it in North Sweden a few weeks back!
