The story behind this video

5.00am on a cold, clear February morning on the slopes of my local hill, Moel Famau, the highest peak in the Clwydian Range in northeast Wales.

There's a great looking upwards this morning, with stars, constellations, satelites and the odd meteor crossing the night skies.

My normal nighttime photography direction is southwards, towards the galactic centre of the milky way, but this morning i'm trying something different, looking northwards towards the pole star Polaris and the constellations of the Plough and Cassiopeia.

See if you can spot them as they swing around Polaris in the upper centre of this video frame.
