Stars stars everywhere, but not a drop to drink.

Since this current meteor shower is such a big deal, and I'm currently on a astro kick - it seemed necessary to give it the ol' college effort. 

I'm still going over the shots, but I found a few that I liked.  

 

 No shooting stars visible, but holy Milky Way!

More coming soon!

Ps. The drive to finding a dark enough place for the above, super dodgy. Tons of bugs, tromping through marshes, avoiding rattlesnakes and bridge trolls. All's well that ends well, but it's always a gamble.

The fault is not in our stars.

After a bit of googling and inquiring with friends, I've discovered it's possible to blog via cellphone. Hopefully this means I'll be more active. Unfortunately, that also means these posts will be subject to bursts whimsy or whatever subject I'm currently obsessed with. 

Such as when I've decided to take a few test shots using the astrotracer function on the shiny new pentax k1.
