A personal goal of mine for this year is to create DSO nightscapes to show scale. The process involves a lot of research and planning. I used photopills to plan and scout the location. I was on location by 2am and I waited for RO to rise and I started tracking. The plan was to actually track for at least an hour but clouds rolled so I had to cut it short. For the foreground, I waited until twilight so that I could get a little bit of detail on the hills. I used a Skyguider Pro tracker to track the star system and I took a photo of the foreground in twilight so as to get a little bit of detail tm.
