I spent Saturday evening at a friends house for his birthday and some board games. Left around 1am, and noticed the sky was crystal clear! Not one to miss a photo opportunity, I raced home, grabbed the camera then headed out to the National Park to find a nice dark spot. 4 1/2 hours later I had the necessary source frames to create this photo - my first shot of the Milky way, and my first attempt at astrophotography.
Just what a need, ANOTHER hobby! :)
