Southern Cross - Tanunda

I've been to Tanunda (most famous for its wines and german heritage) a couple of times in the past week to catch up withcanadian relatives. It was great to see them after a very long time, and amazing how well I seemed to know them, considering. Around midnight on Friday I set up the tripod and tried to catch the Southern Cross, a constellation that features on our flag and in our folklore. You can see it and its pointers (the two bright stars just above the dark 'V' in the bottom third of the picture which point towards the actual 'cross') in this reasonable representation of a bit of our Southern Sky. I remember missing the Southern Cross when I was in Scotland in 2003!
