Below is part of a constellation shot of Hercules before processing. Gives some idea of the number of stars visible from Kelling Heath. No wonder we struggle to work out which is the pole star when polar aligning!

Prize for who counts them and gets the right answer!

Andy,
The main stars of Hercules (the keystone) are at the right edge of this crop. Polaris is way further north.

In the procesed version of this image in the gallery the general background stars have been reduced down with the bright stars emphasised using SBLUR in Iris - this is the amost magical Akiri Fujii effect.
