That was cool.  I live in an area with both light and air pollution... so nothing worth shooting around here... but I would like to do something like that some day.

Thanks.  It was the 14L II. 

I did make it back this year and posted on here, the 6D with Samyang 24 or 14 are much better for this.  Well least the lenses are much better for that use than the Canon's.  6D is also simply a beast with the utlra high ISOs at night.  http://www.extremeinstability.com/2013-5-4.htm

Amazing photos and stories.  You are not a wuss, you are very brave.  I would never do a night hike like that.

Cool trip report. Thanks for the great photos.  I, too, have a bit of phobia of the extreme dark.  I find carrying bear mace and wearing a head lamp relieves my anxiety a little. Red light head lamp is key. Another solution is just keep on forcing yourself to do it. Eventually, you'll get used to it. Thanks again.

Thanks.  Yeah just doing it over and over is what seems to do the trick on everything like that.  Couple times I found a screw driver in the trunk and put that in my pocket lol.  Like least I have a screw driver now.  Bear mace I'd just end up shooting into the wind and getting myself with.  Wonder how hard of a time rattle snakes have biting through tennis shoes.  Probably the one thing I don't give enough respect to when out there.  I'll worry about the random camper or night hiker showing up that wants to steal camera gear lol.

I have seen the galaxy photos at your site time and again. They are very good.

I would have thought of Samyang 14mm hadn't I got a chance to get a mint Canon 14mm 2.8 L II in a very good price.
I would also have thought of Samyang 24mm 1.4 hadn't it been accused of having decentering issues.

So I guess for now I will stick to Canon 14L II and my Zeiss 21 2.8 (with my 5D3)
