A Good Night on the Mountain

Ahhhhh. Finally the clouds had cleared, the moon was close to new, and the sky was rather stable. It turned out to be a good night for astrophotography last night. I started shooting around 6PM and shot constantly for six hours, until the winds started to kick up enough to possibly buffet the cameras and ruin exposures. No two ways about it, it was cold, but stable nights any time of the year in this area should be taken for all they are worth.
No, I do not have the images ready. It takes one to several hours per image to stack, process, and finalize each photo. So, I hope to have them here, on this blog, soon.
