I finally went ‘home’ about 3:15am.
These are the darkest skies I’ve ever seen, excepting when Carol and I watched the sky one night on a mountain in North Carolina. Here’s a sampling of photos from last night.
The sky is so dark, I saw more of the Milky Way than ever before.

If you can’t find the teapot. Here’s a ‘mistake’ when the focus slipped, making the brighter stars larger….
More later. We have a seminar on taking scenic astro photos all day today.
