Marlborough College Blackett Observatory - Star Trails - 2018-09-23

Another star trails image up at the Marlborough College Blackett Observatory. This time it was at Full Moon and the effect is rather eerie with such a bright foreground that resembles daylight, yet the stars are clearly visible in the sky. I also like the fact that the Cooke 10" telescope is visible through the Dome's open shutter. The other interesting thing to note is an early Draconid meteor, just above the hedge between the Dome and my car.
