Pretty Stars

So, I know I've got a ways to go.... but here's a pic of part of the Coat Hanger Asterism, Cr3999 taken through my 6" refractor the other night :-)

New Telescope

I purchased a new telescope at the end of this summer.... It's a Celestron 6" Refractor Advanced VX.  It's lots of fun!  (I bought it from OPT Telescopes ~ they are TERRIFIC!)  I also bought a Cannon Rebel t5i - also loads of fun!

So put the two together... and WOW!

My plan is to post pics along the way to my "Dabbling in Astrophotography" page




Changing things up :-)

Thought I'd "spruce up" my blog a bit moving a few things around and deleting others.  I'm establishing Pages that I'll be adding to....  We shall see :-)

About Me

My photo

I've lived in southeastern Iowa all of my life, now with my wonderful family ~ husband and 3 children. 

I've been teaching science now at the local community college for over 10 year now.  I teach both in the class room and online settings.  I have a passion for ALL PHYSICAL SCIENCE! 

Sometimes I both drift off to sleep and wake up thinking of science.  Science ROCKS ~ but even more so the Creator whose imagination thought up this wonderful universe we call home ROCKS EVEN MORE!  lol
