Surprised there aren't more submissions. So here is my humble quick shot, taken the night of 3/16/13, atop a ridge in Gig Harbor, WA, looking west over Henderson Bay. Shot with Nikon D5000, 5 sec at f5, iso1600, zoomed to 200mm. Camera held on dash of car looking through windshield! I was amazed I got anything. Shot a little over an hour after sunset.

My first submission! This was taken 3/12/13 from Phoenix, AZ. Used standard tripod, no scope. Camera was a Canon T2i with a 300mm Tamron lense. 1 second exposure, 800 ISO.

Thanks!
Rick
