Back to my home
Some number of years ago, I got interested in photography and astronomy,
in part as a respite from thinking
about words and writing
about thought. Seeing the
nebula quickly puts the latter, along with committee
meetings, into perspective.
One thing led to another,
ended up having telescopes
(plural), the largest of which is a Starmaster
reflector with an 18" mirror.
If you have a camera and a telescope, it's hard to resist the temptation to put the two together.
Here are some initial attempts with an Orion (ED) 80 mm refractor and with the 18" Starmaster.
Though with a bigger lens, you can take these.
Here are some more photos taken with smaller cameras.
Along the way, my wife Sue and I also started riding horses.
We then somehow acquired the belief that it would be good to own a horse.
We ended up acquiring Sadie, along with many Sadie-related things, like saddles and bruises. And then Sadie needed a friend. Enter Finn.
