  1. Thanks, Alan, for your continuing series of images from Australia. In addition to vicariously joining you under those superb southern skies, it is interesting to see what modest, high-qualiity equipment can do, in the hands of a talented astrophotographer.

    1. Thanks Roy. The clear nights here are continuing apace it seems, a far cry from two years ago when every night was not only cloudy but bucketing down with rain. Floods were the local order of the day.
