Description

Not able to go out to my usual observing site with my main gear due to Covid-19 lockdown, I wandered up to the hilltop in the park behind home in central Wellington and managed to get 9 half decent cloud-free exposures with my 50mm lens. It was good to at least be outside for a change!
