#TheGreatMilkyWayChase of Death and Insanity continues as we get out Fantasy Canyon, farm land, Escalante, Silver Lake and Little Moab! We share our experiences for Nights 7, 8, 9, 11 and 19 in this week’s podcast. We talk about the challenges of making the most out of the Fantasy Canyon weirdness, the awesomeness of simplicity at a farm, the serendipity of good timing at Escalante, taking a break at Silver Lake, and the great matchmaking it is to do Milky Way Photography at Little Moab.
#TheGreatMilkyWayChase has been a blast, but so dang tiring. We still had our wits about us in these early days of the Chase and the excitement to get all over the world!
We add a new segment in this weeks episode, “What’s new?” Brendon discusses the news of the new standard for 128 TERABYTE SD Cards that are coming in the future!
The shapes at Fantasy Canyon are amazing! But there is a lot of light pollution from all the nearby oil wells. Brendon fantasizes about an Inspector Gadget-type device that blocks the light pollution. Make sure you get there during daytime hours so you can see where to set up your astro photos. There are thousands of distractions that are hard to eliminate when it’s dark out. Finding Fantasy Canyon can be tough as well when it’s dark. There are many roads going to all the oil wells in the area. And the names of all the roads can get confusing. Good thing for GPS!
