Goonhilly Earth Station

A clear night at last provided an opportunity for myself and Alan James to carry out some startrail photography at Goonhilly. The satellite dish "Arthur" (I think) was our main subject. We waited an hour or so for darkness to set in and then commenced our photography. Due to the dish being floodlit our exposure times were adjusted 200 shots in 7-10 minutes for me to get some star trail effect. After a few attempts the temperature commenced to drop away creating condensation on the camera lenses. We carried on but due to the condensation it became impossible to get as many shots as we wanted. That said, I was rather pleased with what I did get. One still image then two colour/black and white images for the blog:
