I set up my Polarie in our yeard on the morning of May 6 with the hopes of catching a few meteors on film. I settled on 25 second exposures ISO-1600 and shot photos from 3:40 to 5:30 A.M. I was pleased how well Polarie tracked. It looks like I caught maybe a couple of meteors =)
From our new house we have a pretty good view of the southeast horizon which happens to be the general location of the May Etna Aquarid Meteor shower. The night before I set up my Polarie to both check out how dark the skies are and remind myself how to use it.
Here are some relatively random pics from our new house:
It seems I've been a bit pre-occupied for the past several months as we shopped for and then purchased a new home just down the road from our old home in town. Here, finally, is what the Moon looks like photographed from our new deck on April 11 :-)
I felt REALLY rusty taking these photos.... but I think I'll get the hang of it back again ;)
