6.14.11 first day that the sky and stars were visible for awhile. had been rather irked by the cloudcover with the unprecedented solar flared in the past week, and likely great auroras. but the clouds did part (at least for now), the moon did peak behind ob hill, and was able to surprisingly get this shot with some motion blur despite strong winds, frostnipped index finger and thumbs (still numb as I am typing), and rapidly diminished discipline in setting up the shot (what? I did not zoom in? I did not take off the lens hood to minimize the shaking? I did not drop the tripod down a foot or so to diminish the wind vibration? I did not use the mirror lock up? Well, at least I used manual focus and a remote).
