      That's really neat pic of the night sky. Wish could take a pic like that.

      Thanks for the comments guys!

      We were out on a night mission as you can see and I tried to take a few photos of the night sky using a long exposure. It was very difficult to pull off in complete darkness. And as quiet as mouse, I fumbled around for my mini 4 inch tripod and plunger and sat it on the ground.

      I took a few of this scene from different angles and was really lucky it came out this well under these conditions.
