Fortuitous capture of a plane passing very close to Orion's Sword. Must be the Star Wars geek in me imagining it as a lightsabre. :)

Just a single exposure, taken down at Hope Island on the Gold Coast last night around 8.30 I think. 17-40L lens at 17mm f/5.6 ISO 1600 15secs.

Got a lot of detail for a quicky

Yeah, I was surprised. I've only done a few night wide fields and still getting a feel for the exposures on tripod. Couldn't expect much more than this, so I'm happy with it.
