As I wait patiently for my Advanced VX Celestron mount to get back from repair (grrrrrrrr!) my husband, Carl, bought me an early 50th birthday present ~ the Polarie by Vixen. It is indeed easy to use and lots of fun!
We're away in Mississippi right now, looking forward to seeing a few Perseids tonight. Last night I took these of the Milky Way ~ 30 second exposure @ ISO 12800. No star trails?
There's a couple of yard lights nearby ~ check out light reflecting from the tree in the last shot.... Hah!

- 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
