Night Sky Photography Class
OK, here's the deal. I have found a wireless connection which I think I can continue to use, I hope... But if a post is missing, please don't worry, it will be that I can't access wireless to post. Yesterday Stan gave a Night Sky Photography lecture to about 25 people from an astronomy club in Albuquerque. After the lecture was over we drove to a dark sky site outside of town, and practiced some of the things that he talked about. I was going around helping people with their first efforts with their own cameras. But I did stop to take a picture or two before it got too dark. Here are people with red lights - both flashlights and headlamps - working on taking pictures, with help from both Stan and I, and from other experienced club members. We use red lamps so that we don't loose our night vision. I think this is a really cool photo, and something different, for me.
