Day 192

Way behind…so here is a comet that won’t be back for 6,800 years…{!-{> Just above the sign, a little below middle and a bit left. A little Milky Way! The Moon, Comet and Big Dipper! More Milky Way. ~Curtis in /\/\onTana! {!-{>

Day 191

Friend Walter and I went out to see the Comet Neowise. A fisheye!  City lights, lower left; Milky Way, upper right; Comet Neowise, bottom center. Two so-so comet photos. Sunset. ~Curtis iin /\/\onTana! {!-{>

Day 189

A quick trip to Benton Lake for the sunset and then off for Comet Gazing! The Dailylife Daughter #1’s phone has one heck of an impressive camera.  It beats the heck out of my iPhone8! A closeup using the Canon 400mm L lens.  DD#1 or Toots. Another cellphone photo.  The comet is roughly to the […]

Day 159

A couple of years ago I posted a lot of photos from the Total Solar Eclipse that Toots and I traveled down to Idaho to see. Back on the 26th of February, 1979, I was in attendance at the previous Total Solar Eclipse visible from the Continental United States. From Bozeman, /\/\T, Montana State University. […]

Day 54

I finally left Bosque del Apache and headed West towards friend in Phoenix. Way up in the New Mexico high country is this. What is that? Well, it is the Very Large Array. From wikipedia: “The Karl G. Jansky Very Large Array (VLA) is a centimeter-wavelength radio astronomyobservatory located in central New Mexico on the Plains of San Agustin, between […]

Day 53

At a campground near Mosque del Apache NWR. Not too shabby for an iPhone photo! Un-retouched. Just resized for viewing comfort. ~Curtis in /\/ew /\/\exico! {!-{>

Day 245

Camera Club Members Walter, Harlee, Rachel, and I went out to shoot the Northern Lights again last night. It was less exciting than the night before! And we stayed out longer, too. There were a few neat photos, like this one: a bit of Northern Lights and a couple flashes of lightning in the distant […]

Day 241

Camera Club Members Walter, Harlee, Rachel, and I went out to shoot the Northern Lights last night. It wasn’t too exciting before we had to go home to bed… More conventional views… If you look slightly above and to the left of the camera you cans see two shooting stars! I am not sure of […]

Day 240

Camera Club Members Walter, Harlee, Rachel, and I went out to shoot the Northern Lights last night. It wasn’t too exciting before we had to go home to bed… The green on the left is the Northern Lights. The steam of stars in the middle is the Milky Way. Below and to the right of […]

Day 100!

The Great Falls Camera Club has “long exposure” as its next topic.  These are two I almost used. From October 2014, near Fife: FRom September 2017, also near Fife. This is a three photo panorama! ~Curtis in /\/\onTana! {!-{>
