Sometimes it is difficult to get my barndoor tracker to line up correctly and I spent the majority of the time just trying to align it properly. I never did get it exactly, but it was close enough to allow for 30 second tracked exposures at 500mm.
The best shot of the evening is this one of Orion Nebula. It is an amazingly beautiful part of the night sky and realitively easy to photograph. After about an hour or so, I called it quits because I did not want to breathe that cold night air for too long having barely recovered from a bad respiratory infection. Good thing I did too...I've spent the last thirty minutes coughing.
