Thanks very much Richard and Paul, it's an amazing thrill once you see it with the naked eye, a sight which is much better than most images show it. If you have a fairly dark location away from bright lights then you should see it readily enough with appropriate dark adaption. I'm very tempted to try a 5 min exposure next time, but that might be pushing it, that 181 sec exp already picked up orange glow from LP miles away, probably in the direction of Dungiven, or even further. Best of luck if your'e having a go for it. A fast wide angle lens would do a good job on it.
