Last Night Under the Milky Way

Last night the weather cooperated but the meteors didn't. Lots of people turned out to view the Camelopardalids Meteor Shower, a handful of Richmond Astronomical Society members and perhaps 25 or so Richmond Photography Meetup Group Members. For several hours we had our own mini star party! While most everyone enjoyed the dark skies the meteor shower was a no show. Fortunately the stars were spectacular and much observing and photography ensued. Here's one of my Milky Way shots: 20 sec exposure | 18mm | f3.5 | ISO6400.
