It seems a rare occurrence when the skies are clear and the lights are out but tonight it happened. Unfortunately it seems the part of my tripod that screws into my camera is missing so I had to use my $6 tripod made for a point and shoot camera. Lets just say it wasn't working very well. I did manage to get a few photos from around my house and the best of the bunch is below.
Now to find the missing piece to my tripod or look to purchase a new one!
