 Under African Skies

Single exposure of Scorpius
(no dark, no flat)


All astrophotography images were taken with a Nikon D7100 and 35mm f/1.8 lens. Each of the images is a sum of one-minute exposures as indicated in the captions. The camera was mounted on a motor-driven platform to track the stars as they moved slowly across the sky.
