  1. I’ve never seen the LMC in such perspective. Beautiful; and I have to say the same for the center of the galaxy. This week I finally started playing with night exposures – from Barnegat Lighthouse, Initial results were encouraging. Future post about it in the works.


    1. I look forward to that. What I’m discovering is that 30 seconds on a dark night landscape reveals amazing things like the LMC and that was totally unexpected. The sky is full of light … Our eyes just can’t see it.
