Through the Looking Glass

Through the Looking Glass

July 2013 Update

I just returned home from a week at 3RF CSAC. It was great, with only one night sacrificed to the Rain God. I shot an interesting Wizard Nebula HaRGB with the Explore Scientific ED127, the Bubble Nebula with same, a couple of fun DSLR shots around M8 with my old Canon XT, and began star trails experimentation with my Pentax Spotmatic and B/W film. I won't know any results in that department for awhile, as the rolls are 36 exposure, and I am too cheap to waste any unused ones!

I had so much fun with the XT that I bought a new 60DA this morning, downloaded a trial of Backyard EOS, and am getting pretty excited about future possibilities with that system! I picked up a SkyTracker at NEAF and already had the Manfrotto tripod and ballhead gear, so it just seemed a natural in the event I hit the road for Australia.

Here is a shot of M8, M20, & M21 with the Canon XT, Canon 200mm f/2.8 lens, 10X300 seconds @ ISO800
