I wasn't able to get a lot of time on this due to it's 9:30pm transit after setup, alignment, focus, etc. But I'm happy with how it came out. I was thinking about adding some narrowband later if the weather cooperates. But will that make it look less "natural"? Man, it was cold outside this trip to the desert. Sitting outside 24 degrees, swapping gloved hands to use the keyboard. Never has a lava-hot microwaved chicken pot pie tasted so good.
