    Took these from my backyard over the past few nights. Been playing around with long exposures with my tripod. I think it's kind of cool how those planes flew right through the area I was shooting. What are the odds.

    15 minute star trail. The sky is pink because of the light pollution in my neighborhood.

    20 minute star trail. 3 planes flew through my shot. The sky is darker because I changed my camera settings.

    I was shooting the little dipper and a jet decided to fly by. You can see the dipper on the left.

    Here are a couple pretty good dipper shots.

    Moon and Venus. I think.

    My brother and his dirty lens. He was wondering why he has spots and smudges in his pictures. Hmmmm. :D

    Canon XSi. I switched between the 18-55mm kit lens and a 50mm 1.8 prime (non zoom) lens.
