    Default Summer view



    Howdy everyone,
    just thought I'd post a photo of my view of the night sky from my part of the world. I now it's out of focus, wrong settings
    etc,etc but thought it might be of some interest to my north of the equator friends.
    You can see the seven sisters at the bottom left of the snap through to Orion. Or the saucepan as us locals call it.



    Cheers, Wayne.
