Pentax 67 with 200mm f/4 @ f/5.6
60 minute exposure on Fuji Acros. Standard development in XTOL.
Exposure June 19, 2012 12:38-1:38 AM EDT
I noted the conditions during the recording of this image in my notes
"Clear, with threat of fog. Transparency average becoming poor by end of run. I continued as stars were dimmed, but not condensed."
"A very bright night for New Moon, due to high haze and auroral glow combined."
Sky Quality Meter reading confirmed this as conditions were rather poor for this site. Readings ranged from 21.2 to 21.06 from the beginning of the exposure to the end.
Regardless of the poor night, I was happy with how the camera,lens and my tired body dealt with it. I stuck with it.
