a perfect triangle (Blue Mountains)

Phil pointed out the neat triangle in the south-west: Saturn (at the top), Mars (to the left), and Spica. Very pretty. I grabbed the Manfrotto tripod from the GBO.

Wide field worked, with some coaxing. Canon 40D unmodded, 13 seconds, f/5.6, zoom at 18mm, ISO 1600, timer. Love the colours.

I couldn't gather enough light without trailing, particularly when zoomed in. Canon 40D unmodded, 30 seconds, f/5.6, zoom at 55mm, ISO 1600, timer. Moving fast near the ecliptic.
