Polaris III

This is exposure took an hour and forty five minutes. The
jitteryness of the stars and hazy feel were due to the fact
that every ten minutes or so, I had to wipe dew from the
lens. Taken at Cherry Springs State Park, a Dark Sky
registered night sky viewing park (and one of the best
places on the east coast to view the night sky) during the
new moon on August 11, 2018.

A great deal of patience to get an image of the cosmos. Incredible to think just how much one misses at night when living in the light pollution of an urban area. Best with a black background.

A long time to wait. The result is impressive.
