That Eclipse

My son is doing a project on the solar system and so despite being really tired after a week of nightshifts I agreed to stay up.

I wanted one covering and one revealing so it was going to be bed after midnight. I put the wee camera on a tripod, set it for nightshot ( there's no detailed settings adjustment ), 10 sec delay and bingo.

Two of Leos minor stars are visible to the left, the bottom one seems to be sigma and the higher one is iota. My astronomy is a ltlle rusty though, so just call them what you want :-)

Probably no kayaking in my days off this week as there's much to do about the garden, got to get those gates up.

Should be more paddling shortly though as my brother has just got kitted out with the necessary gear.
