Moon and Mercury over Edinburgh

Moon and Mercury over Edinburgh

The image was taken from Craiglockhart Hill, one of the 'Seven Hills of Edinburgh'. I enjoy this genre - landscape or townscape with skyscape - a relaxing alternative to the sometimes stressful discipline of deep sky imaging, with complex equipment.

The hill is a very fine astronomy location for me as it is only a 10 minute walk from home, with unobstructed views over the city towards the Castle and beyond across the Forth to Fife. Camera and tripod don't weigh too much and the dog is a good companion on cold, dark windswept hills!
