Immense

It's quite a trek out across Dartmoor to Tavy Cleave, just north of Tavistock. A mile and a half or so from the nearest parking point. 

It's so remote- and the terrain so rugged- that I opted for a daylight recce, not to see if it was worth returning for nightfall but to see if it was *safe* returning for nightfall. Turns out it was, just. A selection of glowsticks placed at regular intervals on my way in helped guide my way out. Of course I collected them, too.

With the moon still present in the early morning sky I didn't expect to see the Milky Way. Yet as my startrail finished and I began to look for that "one last shot" before leaving, the MW popped faintly onto the preview screen of my A7s.

Unusually the MW here is to the north & east, with the moon's last light cast across the hilltop just beneath.
