Backyard Autumn Night Sky in New Jersey

Orion, Tarus, Pleiades and clouds. Looking South from my backyard. One of ~ 1000 images taken with a Nikon D3x and 24 mm f/3.5 PC-E lens (ISO 400, 24 mm, f/4, 30 sec). The series was converted into a time lapsed video.

Backyard Winter Night Sky Over New Jersey: Time-lapsed Video

The ClearSky folks didn’t have a good forecast for the whole night, but I still recorded the night sky looking south. You can see the clouds kept passing over, so no star trails.
