on this one we cheated a little with a red LED light outside the tent, hoping it would look like the tent is casting that light. Wrong color, but who makes orange LEDs? Could tweak it in phtoshop, but it isn't very sharp anyway (f3.5-4.5 zooms don't do stars very well)

this is on the mountaineer's route on Whitney, somewhere above Upper Boy Scout

some proper winter image - about as much snow as I could find this April (i.e. skiing was a bust, you had to go 12+k to find any decent snow cover, like here at Iceberg Lake - except the upper 1/4 of the chute was already snow free at 14k!)

Thanks. What kind of exposure times are you using ?

on the 14mm shot previous page 10 seconds at f2.8 - this one may have been a few seconds longer, but never over 20 sec, which is when the stars start leaving trails.

That full zoom panorama is amazing. Thanks to all for the beautiful photos here. My amateur contribution is the Glacier Divide from Alpine Col in late March. The average photo quality reflects the S95 on auto:)
