Took advantage of a break between storms and before the Moon could blot everything out to take a few shots of a clear sky. The first is a not so centered shot of Cassiopeia and the Resurs 1-4 Rocket passing throught it. The second is the Summer Triangle setting over "my trees".

50 mm  68 sec f/4 800 ISO mounted piggyback on a clock-driven 10" Meade



18 mm  25 sec f/4 1600 ISO

Nice images Richard, and well timed too between the storms. Well done catching the Resurs 1-4 Rocket!

Well done Richard. I particularly like the effect of the silhouetted trees against the cold-looking dark blue/black background in that second shot.
