Star Clusters Etc

I've got the goal of getting a photo of ALL of the Messier Objects... So along those lines in the month of October I had my scope set up several times and took the following photos....  All photos were taken on our front porch.  No stacking =)

A Few Pics :-)

So ~ I (FINALLY) got my Celestron mount returned this week.  Sooooo glad to have it back!  (Just in time for the cool / cold weather?)

Last night was public viewing at the Witte Observatory Complex.  Since I wanted to be as helpful as possible, I didn't set up my scope but I did set up the Polarie :-)  Here are a few pics

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
