During the first full night of our Workshop in Alabama Hills, the wind was fierce. Really fierce. It blew over 6 of the two dozen tripods (not mine, fortunately). How I defended against the wind is the subject of an article on the website. The streak of foreground light is from one of the students who left early in justifiable disgust at the conditions.
Of course by about 9:00 PM, the wind had died down significantly and the sky cleared up. By that time, most had given up.
This image is the result of our work to create a new version of Advanced Stacker Plus. It's a ways from being complete, but we think it will be simpler than ever for folks to operate.
