Larry, that's an excellent suggestion. Only problem is that the Kruger
Park is off limits at night unless you are a Rhino Poacher or a member
of an armed response team. I'll look around for a similar anthill
outside the park. In the meantime I've ordered a cable shutter release
for the K5 so I can use the Astrotracer without standing there with my
finger on the button!
Perhaps you have suggestion for dealing with the harsh light besides
waiting for a rainy day? Maybe some kind of filter?

>> A large anthill with a built in timber supply & a typical sand river. All the tributaries around here look like this in the dry season. The sand beds can be several metres deep on top of the bedrock. The rivers still flow below the surface through the sand. Elephants dig wells & extract the exposed water with their trunks. The pool in this shot is occupied by a solitary hippo.
