The dark skies of SE Oregon were my go to location in 2019, with four visits during the year.  Several of the trips were to experiment with new gear combinations, mounting vintage fish-eyes on a new mirror-less body, pushing f/5.6 lenses with new sensors, or trying really fast glass under the stars.  The heavy green air glow made it a challenging year, still figuring out the best way to adapt to it. In the fall I hoped to be there when a land speed record would chased, but the day before I was to go they tragically had a crash that claimed the drivers life.  I postponed my trip until a month later and enjoyed crisp nights with brilliant stars, and a somber visit to lake bed.  This image sums up the year, great skies under the watch of the Steens, with tracks leading to who knows where.  caelum certe patet
