Lost Maples SNA – Star Party

After capturing the Milky Way last weekend, I decided to take a stab at doing a star trail image around the North Star.  Hope you enjoy!

Last night we ventured back up to Lost Maples SNA for another Star Party.  The San Antonio Astronomical Association made it out this time and had many telescopes setup and shared their knowledge of the night sky with all who attended.  After capturing the Milky Way last weekend, I decided to take a stab at doing a star trail image around the North Star.  Hope you enjoy!

Lost Maples SNA – Star Party

Last night we took a quick road trip up to Lost Maples State Natural Area to attend a star party, with the main event being the peak of this year’s Perseids Meteor Shower.

Last night we took a quick road trip up to Lost Maples State Natural Area to attend a star party, with the main event being the peak of this year’s Perseids Meteor Shower.  The park hosts were very accommodating and helpful, guiding everyone to a special viewing area up above the overflow parking.  The featured astronomy guests were unable to make it but nonetheless we still had a good time, observing several awing glowing streaks and trailing tails.

Despite many attempts to capture a meteor trail on my camera, I didn’t walk away empty handed.  I’m still learning the unique nuances of astro photography developing but hope you enjoy these two that I was pretty proud of.

Peace,
