My Urban Imaging Conditions

While I have access to a reasonable dark sky site at the St.Croix Observatory (SCO) sometimes schedule means imaging from home. Like many of us, my driveway is less than imaging friendly with Bortle 7 to Bortle 8 skies and no chance of seeing the Milky Way. Below is an image of my driveway (the one on the far right) taken at 11 PM on a cloudy October evening. The red horizon is caused by the extended red sensitivity of my Canon 60Da and light pollution from Sackville.
