Nikon Coolpix E5700 digital camera.
The Milky Way view is a single 60 second shot taken with the camera set at F2.8, ISO400 and piggybacked on the telescope, a Meade LX50. The other picture shows a twilight scene taken months before from the same place, where a lonely thrush stands on a neighbouring tree. The photos were processed and combined with Adobe Photoshop.
