First trials with night sky photography

Hey there,

Hard to be back at work after a long 4th of July week, that's the least to say.

But the cool thing is hat this prolonged week end gave me time to go camping in Los Padres National Park with friends for a few days.  The great thing about this park is that the light pollution is very minimal there, so i got to see some pretty cool stars.

Here are my first tests in night sky photography. (click on them to see them bigger)

I did a bit of lightpaintig with an LED torch for the foreground, one thing i need to be better at is finding the milky way, but it's a start!

Enjoy your week
