     Hi  Ken !   In your house again I see lol !!!!  He even has a special filter for the scope so he can view the sun spots on the sun  and photograph them !   That is called Astro Photography  when you photograph the stars,planets and galaxies !

                                    There is a whole new world out there ! Next time you look up at the night skies on a clear night try looking at it through binoculars, you will be amazed at the millions of  stars you can see  with them !

                                   Have a great day !  Or better, Have a great night sky !  And wish upon a star!

I am totally jealous. I love the night sky..I try my best to follow a local blogger called Astro Bob, he is a photographer for the Duluth Newspaper. I have learned so much from him. I have a grandson who is very interested..and we have watched for the Space Station together and he is able to find a few of the Constellations by himself. WE have so many trees here. I usually go to the local cemetery for an unobstructed view of the night sky. I have a Gallioscope but I have never used it..however I am pretty good with the binoculars. It is a wonderful hobby..and Ken you have a wonderful area of photography to explore! My Hat is off to you! :)

Wow, what awesome pictures. As a kid, we'd lay out in the yard many a night finding the different constellations and watch the Northern Lights flicker and move. Need to do that again! Show us more!
