Mission Accomplished, thank you Forum!

Hi there.
Well, maybe some of you remember my first post here.
I was trying to get some info about lenses and gear for a trip to the desert.
Well, I've just came back from there, and I wanted to thank you for helping me
with those questions and show you some pictures I took there.
I was participating in the UWO Planetary Science Filed School, it was an 8 day
trip to Arizona and Utah, to study planetary analogs, such as lava flows, cinder cones, impact craters,
and other kind of geological settings in the Colorado Plateau that can be found in the Moon, Mars, etc.
There was not enough time for pictures, we were camping and hiking most of the time, taking notes and doing assignments, real cool
stuff!
Anyway, I managed to stay up late and take some shots that I want to share with you.
I'm planning to print some of them, here are some small versions on flickr.

Dark Skies, UWO Planetary Science Field School 2013 - a set on Flickr

I hope you like them.
sincerely.

Thank you!
Yes I stacked 4 images of 20 sec with MaximDL. I took and stacked 6 images the first time but the offset with the last two images was too large so I decided not to include them. Unfortunately I took the pictures in jpg...next time I'll remember to use RAW!
