Okie Trails

Spent last week at the Okie-Tex Star Party in the Black Mesa area of Oklahoma (literally across the highway from both Colorado and New Mexico). It was a spectacular SEVEN CLEAR NIGHTS under the stars with some great folks.

I imaged every night until the sun came up, so I am gorged with photons! Before plunging into all of my data, here are a couple of star trail images taken with my Nikon D700.

If you have never attended a star party under extremely dark skies, you owe it to yourself. The feeling is like being on a spaceship drifting through the stars...

Some of the guys from the club have taken similar star trails at Camp Billy-Joe but your framing, composition, and capture of trails is priceless. This year I came down from the mountain from that view during a day hike and now I feel like I am back. Thanks.
