    Nice!

    What's the last one? The Pleiades?

      Yeah, not the same.

      I'm going to check with the admin of another forum to see how we can embed photos from our albums.

        Thanks.

        The last one is the Flame Nebula (NGC 2024) in Orion, right next to Altinak.

          Sounds like a Yu'Pik village.

              Good job, scott.
              Thanks buddy.

              With the first cold front of the season, we're now in good times for Astronomy. I should be able to get some really cool shots soon.

              I can't wait for Comet ISON.

                My best Saturn and Jupiter. Most of y'all have seen these before but they were lost in the crash.

                  Beautiful.



                  You gonna post any pictures of Uranus? (I think I used that one on the last board too, but I never get tired of astronomical humor)

                    I don't think I had seen the Jupiter before. Very nice. I particularly like catching the moons.

                      Stunning!
                      May we raise children who love the unloved things - the dandelion, the worm, the spiderlings.
                      Children who sense the rose needs the thorn and run into rainswept days the same way they turn towards the sun...
                      And when they're grown and someone has to speak for those who have no voice,
                      may they draw upon that wilder bond, those days of tending tender things and be the one.

                          Actually, I'd be as interested in a pic of the rig you use to take these, as I am in the actual stellar pics (which are way cool, btw).

                          Yeah, I'm a technophile.

                              Those are some pretty cool stars on final approach.
