Beautiful shot! We lived in Subiaco for about 4 months in 2005 and had a great time. Named our Aussiedoodle puppy Subi as a result.

Thanks everyone for your comments. I doubt a full circle is physically possible where I am. That is shot over 8 hours and there are only about 4 additional hours of darkness available.

Great image - and you are just down the road from me, incidentally, visit Yellagonga Regional Park pretty often, actually. Good to see someone else from these parts on POTN!

Well, if either, both, of you would like to meet up, I'm all for it. I don't have astro gear, but that's fine with me, if it's fine with you guys. Be nice to meet some photogs from around here.

Andrew/Casper tried sending pm to you both but Casper's setting does not allow pm. So Casper, if you are reading this, please change your settings.
