Dropped .5 on the last day.

This was night #3 of trying to photograph the Orion nebula. Though it's only the second try. I managed to photograph it on night 1. Night two was about 1-1.5 hours of freezing, trying to get the tracker polar aligned and then never actually getting to Orion. This was the third night of trying. It's hard to start completely from scratch on something. I'm not used being completely lost on something photography related. I didn't realize just how complicated it could be and how much there is to learn. When you read a paragraph and have half compromised of terms you've never heard before, it gets overwhelming. It's been cloudy since this photo was taken, so I haven't tried again. We'll see what happens.
