New Atik Horizon Camera =)

I made the leap from a DSLR to a CMOS....  A driving force for expanding in this way is to be able to share with others live images, sometimes called EEA or EAA - Electronically enhanced astronomy or Electronically assisted astronomy.

I'm using the Atik Horizon Camera attached to my 6" Celestron Advanced VX.  I've had to use a 2" extension tube to get it into focus.  There are other tidbits I'll probably mention in later posts, but for now ~ here are a few photos I've taken so far =)

 Globular- M10 (I'm pretty sure....):
 Lagoon Nebula:
 Omega Nebula:
 Trifid Nebula:
 Wild Duck Cluster:

I'm looking forward to "playing around" with this camera more!  I LOVE seeing the images stacked in real-time.  I hope others will enjoy the capture in video mode too ;-)

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
