Thanks for the heads up on the Trail-Pix. I almost always hike with my wife and or son so we would have 3 or more poles available. I ordered a Fuji X-T3 with the 18-55 OIS lens kit. I also ordered a Rokinon 12mm F2.0 NCS CS Ultra Wide Angle Lens for night scapes and astrophotography. I have done a lot of Milky Way shots with my Canon 6D but never when backpacking. I hope to give it a try this summer on shorter trips.

You know the location. Moo coming up behind Black Giant and illuminating Mount Solomons makes this more interesting than the usual night sky
