On June 29th (Saturday), we’ll meet up for a few hours of night photography. The Milky Way core should be visible shortly after sundown so we can start shooting early. We'll only be 2 ½ hours from home, but camping is available at the Pinnacles, and inexpensive lodging is available in Ridgecrest.
We’ll probably meet up around 8 o'clock at the pinnacles. We need to allow adequate time to scout your location and set up your equipment before dark. There is likely to be other photographers, so running around in the dark with lights trying to set up will disturb others.
