How many of you have been out shooting all by yourself and hear noises that go bump in the night? Super cliche I know, but for us astro nerds its totally relatable! All of us have experienced this at some point. On this particular night I had my dad around to be a decoy just in case something came after me lol. Luckily nothing did, but the sounds of nearby elk kept us on our toes. If you’ve ever heard an elk bugle, you know that sound is definitely unnerving. That night they kept sounding off and while we never saw any, we heard some both close and far away. I managed to shoot this pano in between all the spookiness. 2 rows of 5 shots for the sky, 1 row of 5 for the foreground.
Happy Halloween fellow astro nerds!

Haha, I’m processing my shot of this rock formation right now. Nice shot man! Sorry we didn’t link up that week!
Liking how that Tamron performed as well, bet it looks great in hi res!
Elk bugling is the worst. It always seems to get louder and louder.
Hi c: Do you use guided mount to shot photos like that or just a tripod?
