Constellations – Thomaston, GA

These aren’t that great – too many trees, and too much light – from a security light and a gas light, but, they are also my first attempt into the Southern sky from my front yard in Thomaston.

Saturn, Mars & the Moon + The Big Dipper – May 7, 2008

I thought the shot with Saturn, Mars and the Moon is really cool. The Moon is so bright due to the long exposure (30s and then15s, and then I believe 5s for the dimmest one). Once again, I came close to getting all of Ursa Major (the Big Dipper), but once again I failed by about three stars… if only I had been more patient!
