I am not the only one that like to take photos. I have a few friends with the same interests as well, and in September last year a few of us met up at Venabygd in order to satisfy our nerd genes. It was just the four of us and the dark night sky. I have been planning to share with all of you the photos we took that weekend, but due to laziness, general procrastination and some things at work I never got around to it. That is, until now.
I arrived a few hours before the other and played around taking photos, among else of Ringebu stave church. These photos have been processed using Nik Effects (Color Efex and Silver Efex)
When all of us finally arrived we had a great time, doing all the stuff 4 computer nerds and engineers do when we can speak tech and play around with laptops, cameras, lenses, telescopes, tripods and other stuff. Harald had brought along an AstroTrac. Erlend had brought along his telescope. Some of the result you can see below.
There are a few things I would like to point out. Th Pleiades is visible also on the photo taken of the night sky – to the east. It’s the group of stars down in the left corner of the photo. The Andromeda galaxy is visible in the top-fifth of the same photo, slightly to the left of the middle.
