Milky Way in Mississippi Using my Polarie

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!




Here's to clear beautiful skies! :-)

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
