I will try the night sky setting this summer for stars on my mountain backpack trips up at 9 or 10 thousand feet in the clear air.

Great pics Len !

That will be awesome. I remember a few times at 9k that the star show was unbelievable. Never thought of trying to get a pic or video. Didn't think it would show up well. I need to try it now.

Thanks, Bill!

These were shot earlier this week. The water level was unusually high and temps were about 30 degrees at noon.
Hey Len,
I live just across the lake from you.
I’m old enough to remember in 2015-16 how the lakes were gonna be dry by 2025 and it’s all global warming. Lol
Now those same people are crying about the homes getting swallowed by the swelling lakes.
