Unexpected cloud cut me short of my exposures, was hoping for at least over an hour if not more. Decently happy with the outcome of 40 minutes I got to work with. It was a bit of a race as the moon was set to rise just over an hour from taking these exposures, so the cloud was not the only problem!

Was still great to get out after the full moon was stealing the nights!
