Taking shots of the heavens is an inexact science. A lot of trial and error. Last night I went to the top of Indian Mound and set up tripod and camera hoping for a meteor or two. In the middle of the city is not ideal for celestial shooting; the ambient light is ridiculously high. One can, however, get reasonable results. Above is the view of the Indian Mound Neighborhood... a little under 180 degrees. Below is a shot looking straight up into the night sky.
