The third quarter moon rises on the horizon and enters the "half pipe".
I made a big mistake with this startrail. For the second time in a row I forgot to dial in my custom white balance. The camera tries its best but the auto white balance setting leads to unnatural star colours. Until I get around to manually changing the white balance on all the RAW files this will have to do for now.
Some of you may be wondering why I didn't have my astrophotography setup out on a good night like this. The truth is I have had a back/hip problem for the last two weeks and I physically can not lift the heavy mount. Hopefully recover soon.
