These two were taken in Crabtree, Pennsylvania on March 9, 1997. The first was taken at approx. 5:35 am. I was using a 300mm lens at f/4, and Fugi 800 Super G plus. The exposure time was for 60 seconds. The second was taken at appros. 5:38 am. I was using a 300mm lens at f/4, and Fugi 800 Super G plus. The exposure was for 60 seconds. Again, I was using the home-made tracker, so the blurry stars are due to the slight shake from the heavy lens.
