Can you comprehend it?
 
With my new interest in astronomy and getting a new camera yesterday for my new telescope I present this fun quick little video. I might bump this thread when I start getting some images from deep space objects.

Check the end of the thread for Newest Space Photos! Thanks for looking!

Astronomy is fascinating. Dave, let us know when you see Planet Nibiru getting close, it should be viewable in the beginning of 2012 I expect. I just need a few days to hide my gold before the Annunaki arrive. Thanks in advance!

I've been to one star party and it was pretty cool. Hoping to get to more before too long.

I can look up at the universe and say "Dude, I am you."


- Kind of puts that Stewart Obama exchange in perspective. ;)

Cool, I'd be interested in what you can capture.

I'm getting there. I have an autoguider for the scope and a wedge to do photography with. Just bought a cheapy $350 camera to get started with. Make sure I like it before dropping big bucks on a good one.

Watch out, you keep up the pillow talk, and next thing you know Fed-Ex is delivering buckets of boar goo 'so you can ballast your tripod with it.'

Is there anything boar goo CAN'T do?

A very deep question Mr. Lee and much like the wise owl and the tootsie pop one the world may never know.
