Local Events  - 
 
This event isn't actually local at all. I hope you don't mind me posting anyway. I've rented Gateway Group Campground near Spruce Knob, WV to do some astrophotography. The dates are Sunday and Monday nights, June 5th and 6th. If anyone is interested, let me know. It's a long drive, but there should be some great views if the weather holds!

The facilities are limited (no shelter, water or electricity) and it's a 6 hours away. Gateway Group Campground is on a ridge at about 4300 ft elevation in a dark sky area. The site's capacity is 30 and I only have a few people going so there's plenty of space.

This is my one clear shot of the Milky Way during a break in the clouds from Singletary Lake Saturday night.

My friend +Henry Shotwell captured the great shot of M51. I grabbed the image he posted and used Lightroom to bring out more detail.

This is an article I wrote refuting the idea that the concept of infinity also works in nature. Also, why I don't believe that parallel universes and infinite space or time exists. Please share your thoughts. 
Infinity. The word itself invokes a mind-numbing a sense of awe. The concept fills even the most ardent scientist’s imagination with images of parallel universes and time travel. Unfortunately, using a concept that is beyond ...

That's what I had in mind when I said “largest accessible integer”, +Scott Jordan.

Believe that science cannot function without a closed loop universe. Time is not a Swiss watch, it's the motion & distance of the sun, planets & stars. What you are talking about is the 4th dimension, which does exist. Infinity if a mathematical reality, should exist, but who cares, we will never get there!
Cheers!

I took this shot Sunday morning at about 4:00 on Singletary Lake. This is my first try catching the Milky Way Core.

A few photos from our weekend in the mountains. This creek was behind our cabin and the views were from the Blue Ridge Parkway. The Autumn colors were amazing!

My friend +Henry Shotwell posted the image he captured of M51 to the left. I used Lightroom to pull out some detail as shown on the right. It's amazing how much faint detail is available for enhancement, even in a modified JPEG file.

+Wade Jenkins True, this one has lots of artifacts too. I was surprised it enhanced this well. RAW works much better in Lightroom.

+Scott Jordan Noticed the Tarheel T-shirt in your profile photo. I was there 1960-64 and graduated with a degree in poly sci.

Infinity is when the mind can't count, measure , think , perceive, discuss, etc.., any more

I finally get around to writing an article on infinity that I've had bouncing around my head for a while. I feel it's very important and hope you'll take the time to read it. Please share and give me your feedback.

Took in a running mower with a dirty carburetor. The shop owner kept promising to "look at it this afternoon then call me with an estimate" for a month and a half while it sat out in the rain then charged us to rebuild the motor because of water damage. He never called once. The repair costs were more than the mower was worth so we lost our mower.
