8183 Highway 19, Cross Plains, WI
Come learn how to photograph the stars and Milky Way, both as static images and as long swirling trails of moving light. The sun sets before 5 pm (eep!), and it is the weekend of the new moon, so there should be a minimum of other lights in the sky.
We will meet at 7 pm in the Middleton Park and Ride and then leave for Indian Lake County Park by 7:10 pm. From there, we will head down the west trail towards the lake. Bring a tripod and remote shutter release for best results. (Be sure to also dress warmly for the weather and considering bringing a small flashlight or headlamp. It would be ideal if it has a 'red light' setting to avoid bright lights getting into other peoples' pictures.)
Clear, cloud-free skies are a must. If the sky is overcast or raining, we will reschedule for Sunday night (Nov. 3rd). I will post a final decision to the meetup by 6 pm at the latest on Friday if we need to reschedule.
