My 1st and only Saturn this season!  It's low, in Scorpius this year and the weather has not been forgiving at all.  Sadly it's my 1st and being post opposition, my latest start since I've started imaging back in 2006.

I can see a little bit of the south pole area through the Cassini division. Very Impressive!

From earlier this week, and the 1st time out in nearly 6 weeks because of the pollen and tons of bad weather.  Now TS Ana is just depressing me to new lows! 

I was actually happy to find Io in transit as I had done no planning at all.  QUITE windy this night and VERY poor conditions.

Heavy ammo boxes are like family reunions; they bring people together and usually end up with someone being punched in the face.

Very excited to be featured on blogtalkradio with +John Kramer 
We have the joy of bringing to you Mike Phillips today to discuss planetary imaging techniques.

In addition to imaging, he was instrumental in launching the Google+ Hangout series called Virtual Star Parties with Fraser Cain (Universe Today Editor) a few years back. You can see Mike, and the Newtonian telescope he BU...

I was disconnected from everything but my daughter and thousands of other dads and their daughters for 2 whole days. It was wonderful being with real people and nature, sorry Internet you loose!

Come chat at me about science and astronomy! - Life is a balance of molding to the world and shaping it to your ideals
Introduction
Loving husband, proud father, computer geek, astro freak, music lover, sports nut and general fun-loving guy

I think I'm the kind of person who doesn't like strong opinions.  It doesn't matter if I agree with your opinion or not, it's not factual, it never will be 100% factual and I don't care for it.  That's probably why I hate politics.

I've always loved facts, provable facts of nature and things concerning science.  

Over time, I found that most facts are mostly reference and it was the creation of and discovery of new things that intrigued me.

"A good friend once told me you are our memory
without them we equal nothing
And all I can see is the place I wanna be
Suddenly my life was so free
Leaves at my feet, blown to the ground
their echoes are reaching my ears
Nights coming fast, suns going down" - A7x
