Camera + Telescope = Fun

sIMG_1236Well, not like laser-beams-coming-out-your-eyeballs fun, but it’s pretty fun nonetheless.

I could sink a lot of money into astrophotography.  The tripod I want costs as much as a slightly used volkswagen.  And there’s a telescope I’ve seen that sells more for a house.  Seriously.  They make some neat stuff nowadays.  If I win the lottery, that’s where all my money is going.

I snapped these lunar pics while there was still daylight left.  The focus wasn’t as crisp as I’d like but for a little amateur telescope I’ll take it.  We don’t get many clear nights out here but when we do, I’ll get a few nice pics out of it.
