  1. Hey everypony. I need to take a break from here. 

    Clear skies are in the forecast this week, so I have some catching up to do on stargazing.But mainly, I have a lot going on at the moment and need to relax my mind. 

    I'll post some pics when I return.  :fluttershy:

  4. I'm usually not a fan of CGI shows, but I kinda miss the Sonic Boom cartoon.

      @Tacodidra, that's the same one she has  :D

      Wait what!?

      I did enjoy that cartoon. They used to always show it when I went to see my doctor.

  5. Next week's forecast looks really good. I'm eager to catch up on some of the planets. :fluttershy:

    Just have to remember to clean my optics after each use. The pollen is heavy right now!

      Great to hear that! :D

      Pollen... :yuck: There are few things I hate more (I'm terribly allergic)! :unamused:

      @Tacodidra, stay away from Pine trees. lol. The ones around here are fully loaded with pollen!  :sealed:

      I do not miss my car getting covered in pollon.

  6. Looks like somepony found my thermal camera. I bet it took some Alicorn magic to lift it out of its case.  ^_^

      So adorable! ^_^ I can imagine Twilight loving stargazing, she's just the type of pony! :ticking:

      Best pony stargazer ever! :mlp_yay:

      Now that has to be one of the most adorable picture I've ever seen!

  8. The Sun was out for a brief period. Just enough time to snap a UV photo of a flower. The image is pretty noisy because there isn't much UV light reaching the ground with mostly cloudy skies.

    Enjoy! :mlp_grin:

      Those spring feels though.

      No more waking up in the dark and walking to college in sub-zero temperatures.

      Oh, the tears of joy threaten to burst out of my eyeballs and trickle down my face like a brook of sheer euphoria.:mlp_grin:

    3. Phosphor

      @Rarity the Supreme, I'm ready for Spring and lots of sunshine (and clear nights)!  :D

      This winter has been cold and rainy.

  9. I wonder if there any plans for Minuette reactions? This should definitely be one:

      That would definitely be a nice one! :mlp_yay: It reminds me a bit of this one: :bea:. A lot of background ponies (and also a few more prominent ones) definitely deserve smilies of their own... :ooh:

    4. Cash In

      Cash In

      I can see plenty of situations where that reaction will be appropriate.

  10. What a terrible dream last nite! I was flying in a big jetliner and there's was some malfunction that required the pilot to land on one of the interstate highways in a large city. I think it was Dallas. I've never flown before but the turbulence and sounds felt so real. :sunny:

    Anyway, good morning everypony!  :fluttershy:

      Oh boy, dreams can be something! Glad it was only a dream.:dash:

      How are you doing?:catface:

      @AJ2489 and @Sondash Studios, I'm doing ok. I'm just kinda surprised by it. My mind can be so weird sometimes.

      @Califorum, I'm terrified of flying tho  :twismile:

  11. The clouds cleared for a bit and I was able to see Luna's smile low on the horizon.  :LunaMCM:

    1. Tacodidra

      Tacodidra

      Yay! :mlp_yay: She was happy to see you! :orly:

      Hooray! :mlp_yay:

  12. Looks like a great day to reorganize the toolbox in my truck. 

    I pulled out a spare fan clutch, 2 fuel pumps, ignition coil, belts, hoses, etc. I pretty much have the whole auto parts store in there! ^_^

      Sounds like someone had to have a timing belt changed :-P

    3. Phosphor

      Phosphor

      @Stone Cold Steve Tuna, ouch! 

      Timing chain >> Timing belt  :mlp_proud:

      I also found a rebuild kit for the factory carburetor in the toolbox. lol. I took it out because my truck has a 4 barrel Edelbrock carb.

      @J.T. My favorite part was their making me wait 2 1/2 weeks to do it because reasons.

      @Phosphor Little known fact: if you were to drive your car to the moon, you would die.

  13. So Princess Celestia and Luna are retiring... Who's gonna raise the sun and moon? :mlp_confused:

      @Lord Valtasar You are correct. I think this trailer was meant for for the mane 6 and not Starlight.

    3. Cash In

      Either way, it will be something or someone we didn't see coming.

      “You’re here together. Nothing can ever take that away from you.”

      Who knew such profound words would come from Discord? I hope nothing happens to him. :(

  14. I love the new banner. Twilight looks so cute!  ^_^

  15. The Orion Constellation. Shot with a 35mm lens. Barnard's Loop, the Flame, Orion, and part of the Horsehead nebula are also visible.

    There's still some coma near the corners. Might shoot at f/5.6 next time, instead of 4.

      @Sondash Studios, Does director of Equestria Aeronautics and Space Administration. count?  :P

      Twilight Luna

      That’s an awesome title! :mlp_yeehaa:

  16. I am exhausted this evening, but I'm not gonna let that stop me from stargazing tonight. It's gonna be in the 20's (°F), but crystal clear. The cold temps should reduce the thermal noise in my camera too!  :fluttershy:

    1. Tacodidra

      Tacodidra

      Sounds like awesome weather for stargazing! :rarity: I hope you get some great pictures! :kindness:

  17. A pair of safety glasses in visible and ultraviolet light. 

    This is pretty much what I expected since polycarbonate absorbs UV. Still cool to see it, tho.  :mlp_grin:

      LOL no problem. Saw you followed me but I did not follow you. Wanted to return the favor. 

       

  19. Happy Birthday!  :balloon:

  20. I think I found a use for this old mercury vapor lamp: UV light source! :ticking:

      I'm not bad at all, if I do say so myself. It appears that I will finally get a period of lovely weather after nearly constant precipitation, which is always welcome. Thank you for asking! :darling:

    3. Twilight Luna

      Twilight Luna

      Good morning! I had some coffee in my Luna mug. :-D Though it seems counter productive when she wants me to sleep and the coffee keeps me awake. :mlp_confused:

    4. Deae Rising Shine~
  22. Looks like I'll have some clear skies this week. I think I'll take some more wide field shots of the Orion Constellation.

    I did find a solution for my dslr mount. It should handle the weight of that quartz lens.

  23. Happy Birthday! :D

      Thanks Phosphor! :D

  24. I've been reading a lot bout prion diseases such as Scrapie and CJD. Scary stuff, especially considering the spread of chronic wasting disease (CWD) in deer. Hope it doesn't jump the species barrier  :sealed:

     

    1. Duality

      Duality

      Frankly I'm surprised nobody's made a horror/action story where the zombie outbreak is attributed to prionic infection. It already has all the terrifying disinfection resistance and body-fluid transmission methods and it's actually something that exists. :-P

    2. Phosphor

      @Duality, I am kinda surprised by that.

      I seem to recall a zombie movie with Billy Zane in it. I believe it centered around mad cow disease in hamburgers turning people into zombies.  It's been a long time since I've seen it, so my memory of it is hazy.  ^_^
