Where am I with Hubble today?

I'm at #CalTech for a meeting on doing outreach for an AWESOME science project.

I love taking the +Hubble Space Telescope​ with me wherever I go. Where should I visit next?

Надеюсь Вы нам расскажите о самом удивительном и интересном? Мне, например, очень понравилось супер научное фото "Пульсар", помните его? Это очень интересное и необычное фото... Это момент рождения либо новой планеты типа второго Юпитера, либо космической "дыры". Это фото заслуживает особого внимания. Спасибо вам за вашу интересную и увлекательную работу.

+Francine Amani Guturrez PBX it was a horribly unconstitutional ruling and it was only equal rights given to a minority. While the outcome was the right thing to do, the means whereby they did it was not. It was truly usurping states rights. This may cause a significant and destructive backlash and set natural social evolution in this country back another 50 years.

A different perspective

Yesterday I shared a photo of me on a veeeerrrrrry old and tall ladder getting a photograph. This is what that photograph is.

It's the 100" Hooker Telescope in Mount Wilson Observatory.

I've got a little bit more processing to do, but I thought I'd at least share what I was seeing in my viewfinder and why I would go that high up to take the shot.

I was very lucky to have observed at the 100" in its last days as part of the Mt Wilson Observatory under Carnegie in the 1980s. You would run into Allan Sandage, Chip Arp, Bob Howard, Olin Wilson, Geoff Marcy, Doug Duncan, and many others at the dinner table. Sometimes we would share nights on the 100". I observed at coudé though, under the main floor. It was so quiet down there. The only noise was the swishing of the giant governor that regulated the clock drive.

Sunset on an historic catwalk

Last night I had a photoshoot for an event coming up and while I was doing a time-lapse of the sunset from the catwalk on the 100" Telescope dome of Mt Wilson Observatory, my new friend Jamie grabbed this candid shot of Daphne and me enjoying the view and capturing its beauty. 

Can't wait for everything to finish processing and release the promo video for the event, but know that it will be epic!

Here's to a wonderful #ScienceSunday  to you all and may you find the beauty surrounding you, wherever you are.

Star trail with new lens

Recently I invested in a Rokinon 14mm wide-angle prime lens to go with my t3i and decided to give it some tests in the backyard before I put it to good use in some darker places.

After hundreds of 20" exposures at ISO 100 (to hopefully get rid of light pollution) I was able to piece together this star trail. I'm happy with how it came out!

The timelapse is rendering as I type this and can't wait to share it with you all. Looks like I'm delving into the world of nightsky photography.

I'm doomed.

All the happy feels I'm feeling right now!

I'm going to a wedding today for two of my best friends. I already knew it was going to be a beautiful and wonderful day, and I could not think of how it could be a happier one.

I now know how.

Best news ever! The constitutional right to human equality prevails! I hope Australia can catch up.

getting the best shot

Huge thanks to Daphne Mir for snapping this shot the other night as I went to great heights to capture a photo of the 100" with the beautiful mountains as the sun set behind it.

Still processing a LOT of photos and can't wait to share them all with you!

Ponderings and Poetry after a night of Photography

A brief glimpse into the expansive and expanding Universe.
Connections between beings while the heavens blanket their stories.
Looking up at the cosmic mirror, seeing themselves and where they come from.
This is home.
