I took this image early morning on the 22nd September 2017, it was a warm night and the Hyades and Pleiades were beginning to rise so I felt compelled to image them – Living in London it is very difficult to take this sort of image due to the light pollution and really September is a bit too early as they are low in the sky, but I only visit dark sites in Autumn and Spring so this was my only chance.
