Darkness Falls

The sky darkens; The birds go to their roost and become quiet. The only sound is the rustling of the leaves and needles as the wind gently wafts through the branches of the trees. Slowly, imperceptively at first, Mars becomes visible, followed a few minutes later by Saturn and a few of the brighter stars. The observer prepares the telescope for another night of discovery...
This is the first image from a series I took at the Schmidt last week for a dusk to dawn animation. Canon 20D, 20 seconds, 20mm @ f/2, ISO 800, autodark subtract.

Nice image - looks almost like you've got a little campfire going by the door.

The light is one of two small solar powered LED lights I placed at the stairs shortly after I got here. These old eyes don't see as well in the dark as they used to and I still haven't gotten into the habit of grabbing a flashligh when I leave the warm room.
