The LMC and Canopus by Nick James

About this image

An image to remind us of summer? Nick James writes: "During my Australian eclipse trip I spent a night camping on a fairly remote beach in Queensland at 24 37 19.0S, 152 08 35.5E. I only had an undriven tripod but during the night I took a large number of 30s frames at 28mm f/3.5, ISO 1600.The attached is a stack of 9x30s undriven images which have been dark subtracted, rotated, offset and stacked.
