Along The Milky Way, Revisited

I was failing miserably at taking astrophotographs this weekend, but Mrs. UC clicked a few with her Nikon D300.
                                            .

To the right of center is the Dumbbell Nebula. Kinda hard to see without some magnification.
                                           .

A bit of the Milky Way here, and the Lagoon Nebula is visible to left of center.
                                           .

After slewing, her camera, mounted on a viewing scope, ended up at this interesting angle. There's Andromeda and a jet right above our house.
                                             .

A nice starry sky, with a satellite plowing through the shot.

All pics in this post by Mrs. UC.

  1. Hi Craig,

    While Deanne was taking these pics, I was cussing the beancounters and engineers who designed my telescope. I sounded a lot like you. I guess all men are brothers in that respect.

  3. Hi China,

    Thanks. I'll pass along your kind words to Deanne. She's going after nebulas next, as soon as the moon dims a little.
