Night Sky Over Country House

As seen on my blog.

 

Please view this image at full size to see the stars properly.

 

Camera: Canon 350D

Lens: Sigma 8mm f4 fisheye

Settings: 27sec @f4.0 ISO1600

Canon 580EX flash fired bare by hand half a dozen times along the front of the house and up the tree during the exposure.

Processing: Lightroom 2, mostly to increase contrast, tweak exposure and reduce noise.

 

By the way, the bright spot in the middle there is the planet Jupiter.
