Wide Field 1

We got a nice break in the clouds in West Cork over the weekend and I took this photograph:




Camera: Nikon D3100
Lens: 20mm F2.8
ISO: 1600
Exposure: 15sec
Mount: Manfrotto

The milky way is just visible on the right and the line at the top of the image is most likely a satellite, specifically one called Cosmos 1812 or Cosmos 1500 according to Stellarium
