    I was out last night aurora hunting from 1-3am, but I didn't see anything.  Very cool orange moonset – even though it's from the AZ wildfires.  I took the opportunity to try star trails for the first time with my new camera!  I'm going to try to make it down to the BBQ this year with all my camping & camera gear.  Here are two of my attempts, what do you think?
