Going deep space like I am almost at nirvana. That place I have been seeking. 3 minute exposure ISO 800 18 mm wide angle, guided. Jupiter just a great target. Now like a hunter I need to hone and sharpen my skills. I would like to spend more time so I need to find that perfect evening where I do not have morning obligations. It will be a fun ride. Now to plan the hunt.
