Okay, I lied, its was not completely cloudy, still, local lights messed with these shot more then I would have liked!
Clouds – 7/30/08
Still back on Earth… still cloudy, so I decided since God was giving me clouds, I’d make cloudade… err… pictures of clouds! I know, I am bored! But thats okay. I hope to get some more lightning shots if weather permits… funny, I usually say that about Moon shots or constellations! If you want to use one of these pictures as a desktop background, please e-mail me and I will get you the correct size.
Lightning! – 7/29/08
For the second time, I have gotten pictures of lightning here in Thomaston, GA. Last time I only had three, this time I have 5. As with the Moon pictures, I have made them two sizes, one for “viewing,” the other that can be used as a background/wallpaper for your desktop. Enjoy!
Moon Phases – 7/24/08-7/26/08, 7/28/08
Note: I missed the Moon on July 27, 2008 due to cloud cover. Sorry bout that!
Delphinus, Cygnus & Lacerta – 7/26/08
Not the greatest shot in the world, but it is the first time I got all of Lacerta. I took this around 5am, hince the amount of ambient light, plus the Moon is still playing havoc!
Moon Phases #2 – 7/24/08 – 7/26/08
Here is the phases of the Moon again, except instead of three separate images, all three images are in one. There are three sizes below, from the original size, to smaller.
Moon Phases – 7/24/08 – 7/26/08
Here is three pictures showing the changes in the phase of the Moon. Even though only three days have passed, it is pretty neat to see how much the phase changes in that short period of time! Also, note the amount of detail that shows up with each passing picture.
The Moon – 7/26/08
First shots of the Moon from this morning. Pictures taken roughly around 3am. All pictures taken int he same manner as the past several days. These are the first ones I have processed, more to come later.
