We had a bit of a lightning storm early this morning. This is one image from my all sky cam, taken around 3am. The storm was moving away when this was taken, when it was overhead the house was shaking with the thunder. Not ideal conditions for astronomy.

The sky cam is just a low light security camera with a fisheye lens. It is mounted under a perspex dome on the roof. I am using moonglow technologies ASC software for capture. I have this stacking the images over a 3 minute period to increase the sensitivity.
