Astrophotography at Brandon North

Bran­don North is a now-aban­doned train sta­tion north of the city of Bran­don — actu­al­ly north of For­rest, which is north of Bran­don. I head­ed up there a cou­ple nights ago, hop­ing for dark skies so I could take some pho­tos of stars.

Alas, the sta­tion itself is now more bright­ly-lit than when it was in ser­vice. How­ev­er, just down the hill, the lights are most­ly blocked. I got some good photos:


The Big Dipper

The Milky Way

Inter­est­ed in prints of my pho­tos? Let me know, and we can work some­thing out.
