Thanks for posting and perfect timing and more inspiration as I am off to Big Bend National Park here in Texas next week for 6 days to try my hand at taking photos and time lapse of the night sky’s and all of the stars. My research indicated that Big Bend is an excellent location with next to no light pollution and clear sky’s during the winter months.

Thank you for your tip sheet on photographing the moon! I keep it in my camera bag so it’s there when I get a chance to take more photos like that. Mine came out pretty clear this time & I’m sure I’ll get sharper photos when it’s warmer weather.
