First time making pizza completely from scratch (dough included!), and despite it turning out as a NY-style crust, it tasted pretty good.

The kitchen, however, is in pretty bad shape.

Only got about a half hour on the telescope tonight, but I did get two images out. The first is a rather heavily processed (most astro images are) composite of Jupiter and Ganymede, and the second is notable ad the first shot of Venus through the scope. There was heavy cloud cover, and these had to be timed to breaks in the cover (many frames were lost due to the clouds); it was also not quite dark yet. Still, decently happy with how they turned out. The Jupiter image was really useful for learning that workflow.

A half of hour of observing and several hours of processing...

The drive train mostly works (still needs a few tweaks to get timing down just right). Now to get some sensors hooked up.

It's alive! Powered by Ada, though the code is a little hacky.

Last night, I finally got a chance to do some astrophotography. I've had the telescope for a while but only recently got an SLR and adapter for it. They aren't very good, but these are the first four pictures to come out of that.

It was rather impromptu. The nights here have been so overcast (among every other reason I dislike the Bay area, you can add the low number of clear nights) that I'd given up hope. I chanced to look out about 22:00, saw a star, and quickly got the scope set up without acclimating. It was amazing to see Saturn in opposition, though there wasn't a whole lot else to see given the light pollution here.

How about a nice game of VPN Roulette?
