These are the images taken that night with the Milky Way in the backgroundHad nice conditions over the weekend for an overnighter to Donnington Airfield (West of Townsville) where Christian planned a photo shoot of visiting aircraft with the milky way in the background. (Keen to see how they turned out.) A six pack group arrived from destinations like Palmyra Mackay, Heathrow Lethebrook, Longreach and Mareeba and others call in by car from Townsville and others flew in for the breakfast. Clear skies up there and there was light rain when I got back to Palmyra at midday Sunday. All in all a nice trip and the night was not too cold at about 3 degrees.
Christian has another weekend planned now in September when I see the dates I'll post the info.
