A photograph of the milky way taken from Hardwick churchyard, Herefordshire on Tuesday 10th August as I was awaiting the perseids. This church is where T W Webb (Celestial objects for common telescopes) spent most of his years and wrote the book in the rectory a few yards away. Exposure was 200 seconds on a piggybacked Canon 1000DSLR at ISO800 with a 18mm f5.6 lens.
