      Not this one. It's a DSLR that had its factory filter removed.

      I do have a camera that operates in the midwave infrared region: 2000nm-5000nm. You can see both reflected and thermal IR. It's the size of a broadcast camera tho.  :sealed:

      Amazing photography as always! B)

      Awesome! The last one looks very pretty and attractive!:D

  5. About late 20's for me. Started noticing certain joints aching more often, most likely due to all those years working at a small engine shop. I'm 30 and so far only have 3 gray hairs. Hope it stays that way for a while
  6. I use it on my computer and also wear amber glasses when it's near bedtime.
  7. I think I saw these satellites just after twilight yesterday. There was a string of them passing above Venus.  :huh:


  8. Have you done any stargazing with Matt lately?  :ooh:

      Wait...on the ground? :wacko:

      I saw it by placing my hand in front of my shirt, which is white. The ground here is mostly grass, which is probably too dark to notice any shadows. It's not much, but it's still cool to see it  :kirin:

      That's so cool! I didn't even think that was possible. Well I just realized how NOT dark the skies around here are. :o Still fun to go out and stargaze though, even if it's just a little bit of stars I'm able to see. It's so relaxing. :catface:

  9. It was quite hot today, but this was definitely worth it. My 16" telescope performed very well in UV, as predicted. The UV images of Venus are much sharper than those from the Celestron C8. :yay: 

    If anypony is interested, I will add a post comparing the images with an explanation of why there's a difference. It'll be in the nonpony artwork thread.

    Enjoy!  :BrightMacContent:

      @DivineBlur1000, I almost had a good pic of the thin crescent moon yesterday evening. I was walking to the field down the road and saw it. By the time I walked back to grab my camera, it had already set below the trees. Next time  :P 

      @Princess of Hearts ❤️❤️, Cloud details on Venus are only visible in the UV spectrum. Otherwise, the planet appears plain white. Like this:

      Is that visibility only in UV due to the composition of Venus’s clouds and atmosphere?

      @Princess of Hearts ❤️❤️: Yep. The UV absorber could be sufuric acid in the clouds.

  10. Social distancing: Not a problem here!  :fluttershy:

    Some pics of my rural property:

  11. Quite sleepy, even tho I took a 3 hour nap earlier today.
  12. It's late and I don't have to go to bed on time. Feels kinda weird not having to go in to work tomorrow.  :huh:

    I do have a lot of stuff to do at the other place, so I probably won't be on much this week. Have a good night and I'll see ya next time. :grin:
