Astronomy and Astrophotography for the Beginner and Try-Hard Amateur!
Saturday, October 30, 2010
Rather than study all night as originally planned, I decided to make use of the lovely clear skies and take a break. A hell~ish week at work and 20 pages of research paper writing effort steered me towards taking an hour and a half time out. This was a test shot for star trails at 2 minute exposures which actually turned out better than expected. I shot this about 15 miles north, where the skies are dramatically darker. If I could have, I would have recorded the sounds of the large pack of coyotes which seemed to be relatively close to me throughout my imaging session!
