This week we had a nice stretch of cool, clear weather and I took advantage of it by going to Harold Campbell twice in the last 4 four days. During both outings we had very nice clear, cool weather with very little in the way bugs. I spent both nights pointed at M101 and bellow are 2 versions of the same image.

I also took a time lapse sequence that came out pretty cool that I'll be posting in few days.

This is short time-lapse taken mostly at Harold Campbell. The first 15 seconds is from the same night I shot M101.

While waiting for the stars to come out, I shot this close one.
