So this past Friday, I went up with some friends to Rattlesnake Lake off exit 32 on I-90. It was a lot of fun, and we laughed and talked and drank good wine. It was a lovely time. I shot a lot of photos, but didn’t catch any meteoroids. The moon was too full and bright, and there just weren’t that many. I saw about 10 trails in the sky, which was quite pleasant. Here are some photos I did shoot. Funny thing about the full moon… It’s a lot like the full sun.
Specifically, 30 sec @ f/5.6, ISO 200 looks like a daytime exposure. It’s pretty awesome to have images that look like daytime shots with star trails in the backgrounds!
One thing that I realized about this trip was that I was lacking a good release for my D700. Fortunately, a quick trip over to Amazon and my Prime membership means that next time, that won’t be a problem for me.
Until next time…
