Thanks for the camera tips Zondra. I read somewhere that 30 second exposure is about the minimum for good night shots. I’m not sure I can afford a dSLR, but I’ll see what I can find. It sounds like an external shutter release is nice along with the external battery pack. Are there other models that people seem pretty happy with in the winter? I’ve got a point and shoot camera but I don’t know much about the bigger ones. That’s good to hear about the shared drive. Should make sharing pretty easy. Are you wintering this year? How about you Atlas?
