Light pollution

Where I live there is too much extraneous light to appreciate the stars. I see the planets and the moon, the stars hardly at all. I shot the other night and got some interesting shots while we were away in the backwoods of Maine. It took some doing to fool the camera into doing my bidding. But I got some nice star shots. You might not appreciate them without enlarging them on your screen. Nonetheless it was an interesting exercise. They turned out nice enough to wish I had a telescope. Ha ha, kidding, Colleen.

Yes. Enlarge them and view on a big screen. The lighting is very subtle.
