Milky Way over Yarmouth

Last night was my first opportunity to go and do some astrophotography. Unfortunately, dark skies near where I live are few and far between.

My shots last night were taken from Milford-on-Sea, looking out towards Yarmouth on the Isle of Wight. The conditions weren't ideal, and it looked like cloud was going to roll in at the last minute. Thankfully it held off long enough to get some reasonable shots.

Sadly my lens had slipped off its infinite focus point for some of the later shots - I must have knocked it when fitting the lens cap for the dark frames.

And looking away from the Milky Way, the lights of Milton-on-Sea quite effectively light up the clouds.
