Finally got a night to go under the dark sky. Tough the sky is not as good as New Zealand but is pretty amazing to see the northern sky. 35kms from main city Nagpur, we went to friend's farmhouse near Bazargaon village.
We were couple of friends (stargazers) equipped with binoculars to look at star clusters and hopefully comet lovejoy, but unfortunately we had treeline near the horizon and the comet not being more than 20deg above the horizon we could not spot it. So, decided to do a short timelapse / startail with all of us enjoying the rural night sky and campfire along with livestock.
Here is a composite of startrails along with livestock and us in the foreground enjoying the camp fire.
