Donnell Pond Stars, Franklin, ME

One of the joys of being that far out of town is the lack of light pollution.   I finally had a chance to try my starry skies setting on my camera.     I forgot my tripod (well, BF’s tripod), so the best shots were definitely the ones I had laying on the deck rail.    Still, even the ones I angled, but steadied against something were pretty good.    I can’t wait to try this out again with a tripod.

The bright start is several of the pictures is Jupiter.    My father had his telescope out, so we were able to see its three largest moons.
