The other week I was out at the property and got some of my best photos yet of the Quonset huts! (I did manage to get some actual work done on the project that week as well, and I’ll post that in a separate write-up.)

I’ve posted before about some of my adventures in night sky photography out at the property (for example here.) I just sort of figured this would be another night sky session, and maybe I would get lucky to capture a shooting star or something interesting like that. As it turned out, I was able to capture some pretty spectacular images of the Quonset huts with the Milky Way overhead (as well as the occasional passing aircraft). Here are my favorites from that night:
