Got today’s Earth Science Picture of the Day (EPOD) with an image of Aldebaran and the Hyades (which coincidentally also makes an appearance in the May 2015 issue of Astronomy Now magazine).  Taken with the Canon 200mm lens at f#4 I had to “overdo” the 4-pointed artificial star spikes to try and cover up the 8-spikes generated by the lens aperture – I don’t like 8-pointed bright stars.  Thank you Jim at EPOD for continuing to publish work from the New Forest Observatory 🙂
