I have missed 3 amazing nights because of work. Last night was supposed to be the last good night for a bit, but I was in a Band Parent Meeting most of the evening preparing for the first competition. So.... I threw on an 18mm, put the camera on a static mount, and just pointed straight up (milky way area for me),and started shooting 25 second shots for 45 minutes. This is the outcome: a shot of the Cygnus region.
Not great, but got my fix for the week and better then watching the TV.
