The Fighting Dragons of Ara at Stargazing Live

Hi all,

A few days ago I got totally unexpected news - Lord Major Graham Quirk selected the Fightng Dragins of Ara as the main theme for the William Jolly Bridge lit up next week. I'm humbled that my attempts at astrophotography will help to promote astronomy. One can ask for no more.

Nice shot Suavi. Isn't it ironic that they use deep sky pictures to generate more light pollution.

Thank you all for such kind feedback.

Marc - my 3nm Astrodons thrive in light pollution however, I select a unique colour palette for my narrowband images that actually absorbs unwanted light...

That's great Suavi should look good up in lights ..hope you get to see it, or a photo of the bridge at least.

They asked me for one of mine too but I was over seas and couldn't send them the big high res file until I returned (yesterday) so I was probably too late
