The Dark Skies of Northumberland


Recommended Posts

I thought I'd post this as an example of how wonderful the Northumberland dark skies can be. The attached image is a single 13 second shot with an unmodified Cannon 60D. Andromeda and Cassiopeia are clearly visible and for the eagle eyed amongst you, even Caroline's Rose Cluster can be seen to the right of  Beta Cassiopeiae (Caph). 

If you've never been to this region I can promise you it's worth the effort. There are castles galore and stunning beaches that aren't mobbed by tourists, not to mention the Kielder Observatory.
