    I've been around Skywatch almost from its inception and don't believe I've ever seen this done.
    Nice work.

  13. Great set Tony they show the event to perfection, and time well spent to get the images. I did something similar as part of a photo course years ago, had to do a set on the effects of light in photography so spent from 5am until 10pm sitting on a rock on a Carn photographing a building at one shot per hour.Tedious but great fun.

  18. Thanks to all for your kind comments. It was great fun doing this. For Carletta and msdewberry, this is how I did it. I took 10 shots spaced over 3 hours, and then cropped them into 1000 pixel strips, which I merged into Photoshop and then cropped to the final size.

  19. Amazing! This is one of the reasons I want the EF 100-400 mm lense! I also got an EOS 50D, but only an EF-S 55-250 mm lense. But I have to dig deep in my pocket, so it will be on my wish list for a few more months :o)
    Lovely images on your blog. I´m sure I will visit you again!
