Description

Stubbornly decided to try and shoot for 2 minute exposures without a guide camera/scope, and as expected lost just over half due to wind, motion, and being picky. Still, I am happy with the result given the bright moon decided to rise during capturing of the images.

Bonus gif through the blink process comparing brightness change from the moon, here.
