I've found mobile imaging infuriating. I live in Texas. Home of private property. State parks are restricted so much right now you can't stay late like you used to without camping permits and camping permits are like winning the lotto. The club property is a bit of a drive and you have to request permission or notify of access and there are only soo many weekends i can leave the family and go play in the dark and only so many times i can yell at my kids to watch out for scorpions and ninja cows if they come with (they just end up on their ipad/iphone in the car anyway).
The one time I found a dark road that was abandoned (clearly not in use) I was approached by a neighboring farmer with his shotgun at his side and just told to go home... it would have been perfect otherwise. I asked if i could get permission and he just saw me out.. it was a labeled road with city markers on it.
I love star parties... but if i only imaged at star parties i'd never image.
So in my backyard it is.
Anyone know of any land owners near austin out west of the light domes that i can get permission from?
Just for comparison, i have friends outside the US that park on a back country road, set up and sleep in their car without a worry... I just don't feel safe doing that here in the US. My gear would be gone and my windows smashed or the police would harass me or i'd get a tresspassing or parking violation or something absurd...
