First Astro Photo – the Moon.

I’ve tried to photograph the moon before, but I never got the close-up view that I wanted, even with a telephoto lens. So I decided to try attaching my camera to my telescope.

First Photos of the Milky Way

These photos are the results of my first attempt at photographing the Milky Way a couple weeks ago. I am absolutely thrilled that I was able to capture these and grateful that I live in a wonderful rural town that makes it easy to do this.

Playtime in the yard, May 2020

Earlier this month, we had some decent weather here in southeast Missouri. So, I decided to take Sherlock out for some playtime, while practicing my photography skills. I couldn’t take him to the local dog park because it was closed due to COVID-19, but I didn’t need to anyway, because we have a large yardContinue reading “Playtime in the yard, May 2020”
