Storm Chasing Astrophotography

I also imaged Sagittarius with the 50mm lens and no tracking.  This was a stack of 16 10sec images at f/1.4 and ISO3200 using the same master dark frame as the Cygnus shot.  I stopped because the clouds were rolling in faster than I could take pictures.

The cloud moving through the image was illuminated by lightning in 4 of the frames giving it the feel of a new nebula moving into the neighborhood.  I think it looks kinda cool.

I have birthed a new discipline ... wide field astro/storm chaser imaging!

Hey, with good focus and some flats this might have amounted to something!
