NOTE: Please I am looking for comments,tips,etc.

This was taken this morning, in my light polluted backyard in Jacksonville, as a test for me in relation to a new lens (Tokina 11-16mm f2.8) and LR6 editing. I did this as I want to get better at nighttime/astrophotography as I will be making a first attempt at capturing the Milky Way Core this Saturday. FYI, if you look closely, I was lucky to have captured a star/meteor shower just over the Dipper. Thanks!

Grand Canyon

The view from the North Rim of the Grand Canyon. Here I am looking toward the South Rim and the lodge and all the people there are the lights. It is only 8 miles as the crow flies but over a 5 hour drive by road between the rims.

On the 28th and 29th of October we finally had two clear nights in a row so I was able to get outside and set up one of binoculars and a scope. Unfortunately we had a lot of moister and dew around 10:00 p.m. I zoomed in on the second picture. The first four pictures I used a Orion 20mm Expanse eyepiece. The last three pictures I used a Orion 9mm Expanse eyepiece with a 2x barlow.

Equipment used:
Orion 120mm F/5 Refractor
Orion Sky View Pro EQ mount
Stellarvue 10x60 finder
Orion 9 and 20mm Expanse eyepiece
iPhone 6+
Orion 15x70 Resolux binoculars
