It's a nice view of Perseus with Mirfak and the alpha Persei cluster.

It looks like the camera was pointed just a touch low to be able to include the Double-Cluster. See: http://apod.nasa.gov ...ClusterSpiked_flemi​ng.jpg (external link)
Or see: https://en.wikipedia.o​rg/wiki/Double_Cluster (external link)

Sometimes, I like seeing the stars through high, thin clouds. Earlier tonight, I went out and the sky was clear, but decided to wait for more interesting things to get higher in the sky. When I went out about 2am, the entire sky was covered with clouds. I thought it might produce something interesting. I placed two of the same shot side by side so I could label one and leave the other clear of clutter. I'm not certain about where Orion is, but it's somewhere in the vicinity of the label - behind the brightest part of the clouds, which were brightly lit by the lights of Duncanville, Texas.

(Hope this wasn't a private thread!)

Great shot! I agree with you, I prefer a bit of cloud when taking shots of the night sky.

Another shot of the cloudy sky, taken a little over 4 minutes before the ones above. The clouds continued blowing east, and developing more. In this one, the clouds haven't thickened up as much as in the others. Orion is toward the bottom, Gemini to the lower left, and Taurus is at the top.

This was taken at 2:06:58am, October 4, 2016, so all the light just above the trees on the hill is supplied by city lights, just over the hill. Light pollution alive and well!

I like the blue one the best. It's not really very realistic, but it's the prettiest. The clouds must have been moving pretty fast, they are really smeared allover both photos.

I looked outside at a little before midnight, and saw the moon lighting up scattered clouds. It looked like another opportunity for some more pictures. This was taken around midnight, with an 8mm fisheye lens, an 8 second exposure, f:3.5, ISO 800, and the white balance set to tungsten for the street lights and porch lights. That also made the sky look like daylight, except for a couple of stars showing up between the clouds.

It's actually a Bower 8mm lens, but that one isn't on the list, so I selected a similar one.

Sometimes it seems that taking pictures with cloudy skies are my only choice. But clouds add interest to an otherwise standard image.
