It didn't prevent you from capturing it but did diminish some of its intensity. A cool shot. What was the length of exposure in this image?

Thanks for the kind words. The exposures were 4 seconds. I was using a Helios 44-2 on a K5ii so that was about the max I could get without trailing. I could have stopped down a little and used the OGPS-1 but I didn't want to blur the foreground.
