Astro Orbitor

The trick to a night shot with a slow shutter speed, without a tripod and remote shutter release, is a steady hand.  I don’t have a steady hand.  Instead, I leaned against a pile of rock, or rock-like facsimile designed by some imagineer, and shot as steadily as I could.

This shot of the Astro Orbitor at Disneyland was the best of the bunch.

Pentax K20D; Pentax DA 18-55mm AL II; f8; ISO 1600; 1/2 sec.
