Observing and… ‘Observatories’…

Firstly, two moon shots (on successive), mornings no less…

Wed 9th May @ 4.46am, looking out of the bedroom window.

…and again on Thu 10th May 4.55am, looking out of the bedroom window – caught a very lucky break in almost solid clouds!

Photographing future auction ‘lots’ at work, I came across these Lilliput Lane ornaments…

This is a replica of The Great Equatorial, part of Flamsteed House. Originally commissioned in 1857 by the then Astronomer Royal, Sir George Biddell, it forms part of The Old Royal Observatory at Greenwich.

The Observatory dates from 1675 when it was commissioned by King Charles 2nd.

And… The Old Royal Observatory,┬áGreenwich, London.┬áReleased to celebrate the Millennium.

So another of my ‘something a bit different’ threads!

Happy Observing!
