The Helix and Ring =)

I finally had clear skies, free time, AND engergy to set up my scope in our back yard Thursday night =) 

From about 7:30 to 10 I only imaged 2 things, but it was an enjoyable evening ;-)

I had never seen the Helix Nebula live through a telescope, so it was exciting to me to watch the image below reveal itself before my very eyes!  This 20 minutes-worth of photon-gathering =)

To end the evening, I imaged M57 - the Ring Nebula, again.

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
