Starry Skies Day 2

In class this afternoon, we learn processing techniques for our images. Then it's back out to the field. We start by reviewing star photography and are interrupted by a helicopter circling overhead. It is completely distracting as it is dropping unidentifiable objects onto the China Lakes field, shining beacons down and making considerable noise and light. We think they are doing exercises in the night. Today we learn how to do star trails. My group is doing trails around the North Star. I realize that I need some lessons in identification of constellations as I cannot even find the North Star! We also practice light painting and taking shots of the tufas lit up in different ways, which we will combine with other images tomorrow.
