Here's an afocal image of the 10.5-day-old gibbous Moon that I took through a 6" f/8 Orion SkyQuest XT6 Dob on the morning of 1/22/2013.

From 6-5-18 - Venus in a pretty sunset from the Bahamas on our 35th wedding anniversary trip.

 

You can see Venus (if your eyes are sharp and you click to enlarge!) just left and below (if orientation were correct!!) the upper of the three palm fronds.

Beautification project I undertook in 2001 with some artwork from corporate center that was going to be discarded in an excessively long hallway in an old plant I worked in. Also, it was very awkward as people mutually approached while traversing this endless hallway - the artwork was meant to help with that too! All in all, over 25 artworks.
