New Gear Jinx Jinx! / by Jeff Tropeano

Well, I didn't end up jinxing myself.  Although I was worried about the weather and clouds, when we arrived at our campsite, the entire southern sky opened up.  The iOptron Sky Tracker worked amazingly well.  As a matter of fact, I didn't give it enough credit.  I shot at ISO 1600, and I probably could have gone down to 800 without trailing.

I'm happy with my first wide-angle shot.  Processing wide-angle shots is a lot different than deep sky, and I have a long way to go.

A change in the weather is sufficient to recreate the world and ourselves.
