Waited for someone to pass by. After 15 minutes of taking blurry pictures of people passing by, decided to leave the scene "alone"

I start a new job tomorrow after leaving my 17.5 year position at my prior job. Rewarded myself with this Taylor GS mini acoustic guitar and to keep my Soprano Ranch Uke company. Image taken with my trusty go to 20mm pancake on the gx9. Life is good.

I was just about to ask if you had a tracking rig cuz that's super sharp for 60 seconds. (also rather impressive looking at f/1.7)
Ya, this was the first chance I had to really use my SkyTracker Pro on a clear calm night. Considering this was from my backyard, with some mild light pollution I am pretty happy. I will be taking the rig on a road trip soon, and should have more chances to take shots from the middle-of-no-where.

In regards to light pollution, I also noticed this being advertised pretty heavily (the way it works makes sense to me, not just a color shift, it blocks out that orangeish wavelength so you get more exposure from the rest without as much time). Haven't really seen any consumer take on it. Night Sky

Actually I used one of those for these night shots (first time using it). They do work to bring out more color.
I just posted my review with a before/after photo to the Amazon page for the one I used.
The camera was set to manual, and all settings were the same between shots other than the filter.

I should say, it does get rid of the orangish hue, but it does not get rid of the actual light. Your photo will still lose some contrast in the from of bluish light.

That's over half the price of the breakthrough version, going to have to look into that, the Haidas I've seen tended to be decent (I use Breakthrough for their CPL and 10-stop ND, but I have some Hoya Solas ND for 3-stop and 6-stop). I'll be hitting up the U.P. in August, and that'll hopefully help with what little bit of light pollution is coming from the Marquette area.
