Some Astro photography pics
There was a total lunar eclipse in in January this year but being in Cape Town we would only see the start before it slipped below the horizon.
I was not convinced it would be worth my while but in the end it turned out to be quite a good call to get up at 4:30 and head up to Signal Hill.
During that photographic session I saw a green deep sky object. I am still battling to identify it and figure out why it is green. The red circle on the right is a hiker, the red circle on theleft is Venus, but what is the green object?
Some other pictures we took on our trip through Bontebok National Park

Cape Sparrow in the evening sun.
We went to the Bontebok National park to do some astro-photography. The park is small but beautiful.
Bontebok Park website is here:
There were some clouds early in the evening which cleared up and by 2 am the stars were gorgeous.
Sunset. Clouds to ruin the “seeing”. Nice pictures though.
10 pm. Still clouds but they do add some interest.
2 am and the camera is out of focus. Pictures are still pretty good though.
