Sunrise Blues - 16th may

Friday morning dawned with clear skies, so decided to grab a few shots before I went to work.  There was a thin layer of radiation fog which meant I had to use a longer exposure than i do normally, but the pay back was that the seeing conditions were near perfect.  The image was crystal clear with not atmospheric shimmering.  I wish I had more time to get some bigger scopes out.  If it wasn't for the slight haze I think there would have been great proms on view too.  This image was taken with the 40mm at 700mm focal length with the DMK31 camera.
