Long Exposure Shots Tonight

Rocket launch tonight, sitting there all set up and ready to go, camera focused just shy of infinity, aimed right the trees light up as the launch began and. . . the auto-shut-off kicked in and I had to jump, grab the power switch and flick it on and off. Luckily the camera fires up quick but I still got a late start on the 30 second exposure.

A plane circling the area, I guess to stay out of the launch zone, turned and headed almost directly at me. You can also see another plane WAY off in the distance just above the power lines. Plus there’s a ton of stars in this one and you can see the end of the rocket’s smoke trail on the left.
