I got it in my head to try some nighttime photography. My first attempt was a bit bumbling, and I couldn't remember anything I had read about the process. My ISO was way too high, and despite its first appearance as a fail, I really liked how it turned out. But, in more of an I meant to do that kinda way. Which I didn't.
I went back the next night and tried to fix it. And despite this one looking more like I expected, it still seems a little off depending on how I view it (took it off facebook it was so pixelated) so I'm sure I've got a lot more to learn on this subject. But, a fun experience none the less. I got my star gazing in at least. Gearing up for some more in a few weeks because it just so happens that the Perseids meteor shower occurs right near Cassiopeia on August 11/12 and 12/13.
