Stargazing with Elyse

Elyse has been very interested in astronomy lately, so tonight we went to Bay Creek Park to spend some time in as much dark as we could find (though not quite as much as I'd hoped) looking up at the stars. We found a decent spot on one of the baseball fields from which quite a few stars were visible. I took my "real" camera, a Canon 60D, and tripod so I could take some long exposures of the night sky; here are a couple of my favorites:

(The streaks in the sky are airplanes; these were 15- or 30-second exposures, and that's how far an airplane moves across the night sky in 15 or 30 seconds.)
