They said it couldn’t be done. Well not quite, it can be done with a clear view north if you’re closer to the equator than most Australian’s but it’s not without a good deal of effort which in this case involved a chainsaw and really heavy handed processing to deal with the red bias near the horizon.

I think it turned out better than any previous attempt!
