Surprise clearing led me to rush out only with camera and tripod

Amazing pic for 20 sec total exposure on an undriven camera but the Sony A7s is very good at that kind of thing.

Cracking image John. I love the composition with both the Hyades and Pleiades clusters in view; it makes for one of the best 46P images I've seen.
