Sky at Fahnestock

I had a great time going to Fahnestock State Park on a Saturday night, March 17. I picked up Ed Rojas and spent a good portion of the night getting in some astrophotography before leaving around 5:30AM.

I like the location. It’s a pretty dark sky though not dark enough to see the Milky Way. Otherwise, it was still plenty dark compared to New York City.

Ed and I took some breaks from shooting pictures and we got to look through Howard Fink’s 12.5” Portaball telescope which showed very nice detail!

Thanks to Peter for giving Ed and me a “Sky tour” and recommending a couple of constellations that would make nice photographs. I wanted to share a few shots.
