Orion (Finally, clear skies!)

Finally, clear skies!

By the time I arrived at my dark location I only had an hour to shoot before moonrise. Got set up and snapped 16 15 sec images (15s @ f/3.2. ISO 1600). Then (it figures  ) a pack of coyotes started coming close. Maybe 10 animals. I shined a bright flashlight at them, honked my horn, and put my headlights on them. They're so skittish when I go out to photograph them, I have never been afraid of a coyote. Until tonight. These critters were fearless, and I figured I would make a nice meal for them, so I got out of there. Went down the road a few miles, but by then the moon was out. Time to go home, but at least  I got something. After almost two weeks of cloudy nights, it was absolutely beautiful when I looked up.

(Tripod mounted 7D w/ 24-70 f/2.8. 16 stacked images. 4 minutes total at ISO 1600)

Thanks for the look.
