  1. It's not a telescope, I used a regular camera telephoto lens, and didn't rotate the photograph.
  2. It's funny, but in this field there is no perspective in space. If you search for this object online you'll find many orientations.
  3. HIP4127, HIP3692 I think. If you get some free time, download Stellarium. It's free, and it'll show you with a description of practically anything . BTW, I use this in conjunction with another free program APT (Astro Photography Tools) , to help me locate my targets.
  4. Use to be about 40 years ago, just wanted to play a little.
  5. Used my Nikon dslr with a 135mm lens on a star tracker. Took 30 pics, each 30 seconds. I modified my camera by removing the uv/ir cut filter that all cameras have built in and added a light pollution filter in front of the lens.
  6. My First atempt at photographing the heavens was the Andromeda Galaxy.
  7. Today I woke up and as I had my morning coffee, I realized that everything is about to change. No matter how I vote, no matter what I say, something evil has invaded our nation, and our lives are never going to be the same. I have been confused by the hostility of family and friends. I look at people I have known all my life--so hate-filled that they agree with opinions they would never express as their own. I think that I may well have entered the Twilight Zone. We have become a nation that has lost its collective mind! You can't justify this insanity: • If a guy pretends to be a woman, you are required to pretend with him? • Somehow it’s un-American for the census to count how many Americans are in America? • Russians influencing our elections are bad, but illegals voting in our elections are good? • It was cool for Joe Biden to "blackmail" the President of Ukraine, but it’s an impeachable offense if Donald Trump inquires about it? • Twenty is too young to drink a beer, but eighteen is old enough to vote? • People who have never owned slaves should pay slavery reparations to people who have never been slaves? • People who have never been to college should pay the debts of college students who took out huge loans for their degrees? • Immigrants with tuberculosis and polio are welcome, but you’d better be able to prove your dog is vaccinated? • Irish doctors and German engineers who want to immigrate to the US must go through a rigorous vetting process, but any illiterate gang-bangers who jump the southern fence are welcome? • $5 billion for border security is too expensive, but $15 trillion for “free” health care is not? • If you cheat to get into college you go to prison, but if you cheat to get into the country you go to college for free? • People who say there is no such thing as gender are demanding a female President? • We see other countries going Socialist and collapsing, but it seems like a great plan to us? • Some people are held responsible for things that happened before they were born, and other people are not held responsible for what they are doing right now? • Criminals are caught-and-released to hurt more people, but stopping them is bad because it's a violation of THEIR rights? • And pointing out all this hypocrisy somehow makes us "racists"? Nothing makes sense anymore - no values, no morals, and no civility. People are dying of a Chinese virus, but it's racist to refer to it as Chinese even though it began in China. We are clearly living in an upside down world where right is wrong and wrong is right, where moral is immoral and immoral is moral, where good is evil and evil is good, where killing murderers is wrong but killing unborn babies is OK ? Wake up America, the great unsinkable ship Titanic America has hit an iceberg, is taking on water, and is sinking fast. Speak up!
  8. But the draft picks are hidding from the JETS, and rather stay for another semester.
