Clear Skies!

Well it all cleared up for about an hour!  So I rushed about panicking for about 5 minutes, then decided against getting the scope out as I only had 25% charge on my camera.

So, instead I got some star trails :)  Before the ubiquitous clouds rolled back in, I managed to get off 3 shots, one 10 minute exposure and two five minute exposures ... for my first ever star trails, I was quite happy!

It's raining stars! Why the "dots" on the bottom one?

LOL, that would be about the first 3-5 seconds of the exposure - me waving the camera around trying to see if this thing is on :)
