The following two images were taken with the same equipment and settings as those in the previous post.
For reference, here is an image of the Orion constellation taken from my house the same night as the Bedias trip:
|Orion at the ObservaRory|
|A few miles east of Bedias, Texas. The red line to the left was from a passing aircraft.|
While not as dark overall as the sky near Weldon, the view was very nice, with many faint stars visible to the naked eye at zenith, and the Milky Way clearly visible.
