Moon – Selma, AL – 8/9/08
This past weekend, my brothers and I had the wonderful opportunity to visit some of our real good friends who live in Selma, Alabama. I took my telescope because I knew they lived in tghe country, and it would be dark. I was able to get some really good images. To keep with my Moon theme, here is a shot of the moon. More to come later!
The Moon – 8/6/08
Like the last post, here is the Moon from tonight, plus the difference in phase from the past three nights. I have some shots more up close, both from last night and tonight, and when I get around to processing them, I will post them.
The Moon – 8/4/08
The Moon is back! I never really got the exposure or focus quite right, but these are not too bad.
Arcturus & Vega – 8/4/08
Both of these stars are double stars, and with these pictures, its quite apparent!
Jupiter – 8/4/08
I took some photos of the moon tonight, which I will post later, but here is one I got of Jupiter, not too bad!
Jupiter & Sagittarius – 8/1/08
Okay, I lied, its was not completely cloudy, still, local lights messed with these shot more then I would have liked!
Ursa Major – The Rest of the Big Dipper
Last night I posted a picture featuring Mizar and Alcor, a nice double star located in the handle of the Big Dipper, an asterism in the constellation Ursa Major. Well, I did not get all of the Big Dipper in the shot, so here is the rest of the Big Dipper.
