Pics Using Polarie

Still waiting to get my Advanced VX mount back from repair from Celestron :-(  ..... but enjoying taking photos directly using my camera mounted to my Vixen Polarie :-)

I was out at the Witte Observatory for public viewing Friday night.  Here's a quick video I put together a week ago to show students around the observatory:


Here are the pics I took Friday night.  The Moon was a waxing crescent.

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
