    Anything astronomy related
  1. It's tropical here. Just walking to the mailbox and back will have ya soaked. When the sun sets, the mosquitoes carry away anything that isn't bolted down. lol
  2. Hot and humid At least there's plenty of clear nights in the forecast.
  3. These Magnolias are elusive. I can only seem to photograph them when they're closed  :dash:

    The colors on the leaves appear way off. I shot these with a different lens and I don't have a filter for it. Near IR light completely dominates all 3 color channels in an unfiltered camera.  :adorkable:

      @Twilight Luna, I know, right? I will have to be stealthier next time they open up.  :P

      @Sondash Studios, Thank you! Tho in fairness, I don't think most pros shoot outside the visible spectrum. If they did, their cameras and lens would probably smoke what I have.  :adorkable:

      @Rocco, Thank you! Magnolias smell so good!  :wub:

      That's a classic! :rarity: One of their best songs! :yay:

  5. Well, no Saturn this morning. Some clouds passed thru while doing some test shots on Jupiter and the haze remained. 

    I do have an image and video clip to share tho. It's quite clear I will need an electric focuser at these magnifications. :dash:

    Enjoy!  :grin: and I'm going back to bed  :orly:

      I left my gear setup outside and I took a nap earlier. 

      Let's do this!  :ph3ar:

  6. I've been browsing the forums for a bit. Also debating whether I should get a couple hours of sleep and wake up around 2:30am, or stay up all night to do more astronomy.
  7. Incredibly tired and sleepy. I'm going to try to get a couple hours of sleep before I look at Saturn with my telescope later tonight.
  8. *Sees a few passing clouds  

    Rainbow Dash, you said there were no more clouds tonight  :confused:

  9. Above average conditions are in the forecast tonight. Hmmm, which telescope do I want to use? :huh:

    And which planet? Jupiter or Saturn? I don't think I can pull an all nighter  :orly:

      Oh! I meant to tell you, dryer sheets keep mosquitos away! They hate the smell :squee: maybe that'll help :3
