Description

This was hard. Really hard. I traveled to Huntsville AL (about 525 miles from my house) since it was supposed to be cloudy at my place. Seeing was bad, very bad. I took a bunch of 3 minute captures over a bit over an hour and then ran them through Autostakkert, then blended the best of the stacks in Photoshop 2021. It was a pain. But hey, I got it! I also had a family from grandparents to grand kids come up and check out what I was doing and I set up in a church parking lot. It was pretty cool to explain what I was doing to them.
