New Nightscape: Cape Charles Brewery in Cape Charles Virginia.
From Jim: Well it finally happened, my favorite Astro weather service failed me. What was supposed to be 100% clear night had me chasing a clear patch of sky all night long. Sometimes 5am comes sooner than you think. So for the Astro this meant cranking down the exposures way shorter than I usually film, like 1 minute as apposed to 30minute exposures. Always enjoyable though, and it was a beautiful Monday evening in Cape Charles.
The Brewery itself was a joy to film, the place is really cool. And if you have not been there yet, the food is excellent and of course they have plenty of their award-winning brew. They also smoke their own BBQ right on the lot. Plenty of outside seating, firepits, cornhole, the works. Great place.Now for the Milky Way, if you don’t get a chance to catch it this week during the new moon, June is a fantastic month to view the night sky here in the Mid Atlantic. I should be in Wachapreague for the new moon of June filming, bortle 1 sky, can’t beat it!Godspeed,JBPhoto info: Foreground, 65 RAW exposures, ISO 100-200, Shutter, 2-8 seconds, Apeture-F11 down to 2.8.
