Cool Adams pix, Robert. I'm guessing that was early in the morning?

Kerry - I never even saw you there - saw your scope but didn't get a chance to say "Hi" - sorry man!





Oh no...didn't know you showed up. Glad you made it though!
I may be doing a Sept. SP...hint hint.

Kerry, I'm disappointed in the appearance of your two night sky shots in the thread.




Sorry Mike, its a really big file...shrinking it down to CN standards made it less than admirable. Full res on the home computer is great!

I can email the full shot to you...just pm me.

Hey, what a great star party - glad to meet so many new faces, and a new place. A big thanks to Mike for your hospitality.

Starting to get things back in order after unloading and putting things away.

Here is the first photo from Wednesday night - fighting the wind at 2000mm FL was a bit of a challenge, but there was enough to get the ring, but with some oblong stars.

Nicely framed North American, Doug! I tried without success to spot it with my binocs one night. Back in my recliner 'til my arms hurt. Couldn't get it to pop out.

Nice work Doug!

Nobody tried to guess the target for Jennika's astrophoto:



so I will give it up. It's a toenail polish called "Galaxy".

I'm adding a picture of my telescope setup - with the cover on. I had some great views, and shared a number of sights with others, while there even though I didn't stay up too late

To add to the mountain shots, I'm adding a picture of Mt Hood taken from the Maryhill Museum. Even though we could not see this mountin from the star party site it does represent the view elsewhere in Goldendale

Stacy, I was going to guess a granite counter top. But the galaxy nail polish is over the top! Funny!

Robert - great images! Was great to meet you and pick your brain on a number of imaging issues. Appreciate the help and chats.

Nice view of Hood, Len. Actually, by walking 150 yd. up the 30 or 40 vertical feet to the road a guy can see the top of Hood.

Yes, very nice scope Len. Impressive package for that price. It has piqued my interest. Nice chatting with you and your lovely wife Debbie as well.

Here is the Wide shot I got last night(at Pixieland)... 41 X 2 minutes guided. 105mm camera lens




Robert, nice image! Curious, what lens did you use? Was that a 24-105mm Canon zoom? Nice results!

Kerry - great travel photos. Nice touch. Thanks for posting!

Doug
