We live on the surface of a small planet, in orbit around an average star, at the edge of an ordinary galaxy among billions of others in the cosmos. Many of us often think of “space” as something far away and detached from our daily lives, yet we and our tiny planet are literally made of stardust. Perspective is important. Our little home planet is an amazingly beautiful and fragile “space ship” speeding through an unimaginable cosmos, yet only a few of us bother to look out the window (look up) or help take care of our little home. So keep looking up, be part of the global warming solution, and enjoy some photos taken through the window of our little cosmic home (@cosmichome).
I've been imaging the planets and the Moon since the 1960's. In the early days it was film, and processing involved late nights in the darkroom with smelly chemicals. Thanks to technology, that’s no longer necessary.
Currently I use a C14 on a Celestron CGE mount, with a tandem mounted TMB130 refractor as a guide scope and deep sky lens.
I also have a somewhat neglected blog. Here's the link if you'd like to take a look:
