    We had a clear sky last night so I thought I'd try to make a timelapse of the stars. I haven't put the photos together for the timelapse yet but thought I'd share my favorite. In the 45 minutes my camera was out there, a doe came out and made an appearance in a few photos (lower left). This is also exactly one more deer than I've seen while hunting the past two days.

    Taken on a Canon EOS-M with 22mm f/2 lens. 15 second shutter speed. ISO 400.

    I'm pretty pleased with how the pictures turned out, considering it was my first attempt, focusing was a complete guess, and I only took about a half dozen practice shots to set the exposure before letting the intervalometer go. It's definitely something I'm going to try every chance I get. These pics just look so cool!

    Here's the final product. I think it turned out pretty well, although I wish the tree on the left wasn't in the shot. I suggest watching in 1080p HD.
