I am on a quest for two photos with the Starry Night Tent: one with it in the foreground with Orion overhead, and another with the Milky Way core overhead. The second will have to wait until summer, but the former is a winter target! Unfortunately on this trip the moon phase was not going … Continue reading Frontenac Winter Moonscapes
