It's amazing how little time you have with celestial bodies when you are trying to line them up in the viewfinder. Wander around thinking about composition, and arrangement of the various elements in the frame and before you know it, a planet can move on you. I swear that bright spot in the sky was 20 degrees higher in the sky when I started this project.
I guess it could be the tears in my eyes. It's cold out. Ok, for some of you 31 Fahrenheit isn't cold. Still, when you grab ahold of an aluminum tripod with bare hands it's a shock.
