The Fred Lawrence Whipple Observatory is operated by the Smithsonian in SE Arizona located near Amado on top of Mount Hopkins. You can see a car driving up to the observatory and just make out the observatory on Hopkins center left (the highest peak in the frame). For best wonderment results, please view large in the lightbox! ;-)))
Image Notes: This is a stacked star trails image. I used 81 26 second shots at 2500 ISO, F/2.8 at 16 mm taken with my Nikon D700 on my 11-16 Tokina. Three dark frames were taken and three separate shots were exposed to bring out the foreground via light-painting and longer exposure. Finally, I added a bit of diffraction/star burst to the N. Star/Polaris via Pro Digital's StarSpikes plugin.
(New post) Unit Testing Backbone.js Apps Using QUnit and SinonJS
A week or two ago, we looked at unit testing Backbone.js apps using Jasmine. This week I've written about how to unit test them using QUnit and SinonJS as a part of my ongoing work on my new Backbone book.

Searching for web development/mobile app contracts. Web work, photography, writer, traveler.
Currently located in Southern California, I've enjoyed jobs that have also taken me from Stanford, to NYC, to Antarctica. Always interested in natural history, camping, outdoors, sailing, swimming, politics. Several years as a web and mobile app developer, although I ran engines and switch gears in Antarctica for a few seasons.
