So I went to Moab and While I wasn't officially in The Canyonlands Dark-sky Preserve I was in Deadhorse Point right next door. I'm from the east coast and our light pollution is just horrible. I was stunned to st the night sky in all it's glory on a clear moonless night. The darker picture is from my phone, no tripod and a 3 second exposure. The brighter is also from my phone with a 5 second exposure and no tripod. Anything over 5 sec exposure didn't come out that great without a tripod.
