Thank you. My main computer is about five years old now and sometimes has trouble keeping up.

I would consider this a successful attempt.

Here's Mt. Baker, in WA state, moonlit from my high camp at Skyline Divide. What a gorgeous spot and not too hard a hike, a couple thousand feet.

Nice JeffinSeattle. I've tried several moonlight shots and the landscapes I've expected to be moonlit just don't come anywhere near as moonlit as in your shot.

Love looking at everyone else's photos but rarely have something to share. I was out last night experimenting with the astrophotography rig. After processing today, looks like it's worth sharing.

It's a custom build so now I gotta wait.

So I've had the new machine for over a month and used it for editing the last 1/3 of the shots from our Utah national parks trip. The monitor is just awesome compared to our old laptop that I used to use, which seemed really good at the time. Below are Corona Arch, Dead Horse Point, and Delicate Arch.

Those photos are spectacular! You have quite the eye. What type of camera do you use? I recently got into the Sony mirrorless. Do you store your photos on the new computer? Thanks for the update!
