Stars quilted by clouds

I made several mistakes while shooting the night sky in Louisiana – one of which was standing in the back of a pickup truck for a few of the long exposures. Any time I moved things got precariously wobbly, and because I was in a walking boot for my broken right leg, wobbly was the norm. I was lucky enough to find I could balance myself against the cab of the truck in a way that I could make it work. It was so dark that I had to push the upper limits of my camera’s ISO capabilities. You get a ton of grain out of the clouds for that very reason, but it actually coaxes out the stars kind nicely.
