More Mt. Hopkins Sunsets

It's hard not to shoot this scene from my fron yard. An Arizona sunset, Arizona geology and Arizona astronomy combine in this image of Mt. Hopkins and the MMT Observatory. Canon 20D - 1/640th, 238mm @ f/5.6, ISO 400

Hey, thought you might have dropped off the planet without any photos in almost 2 weeks! Funny, I took almost the same subject around sunset tonight, only from Kitt Peak with Mount Wrightson and Mount Hopkins in the frame together.... :-) I haven't downloaded the image from my CF yet, though.

Yeah I know. I've been a bit of a hemit. We had the LPL/TAAA open house on Mt. Lemmon and Astronomy Camp over the last two weekends. My new mount should arrive tomorrow so expect more "Beyond" images soon.

Glad to see you're still alive. I had the astro campers up here on Monday night and one of them mentioned your name. My new Sigma EF-500 DG Super has supposedly been delivered at the lab - can't wait to get my actual paws on it....

Yeah - I'm shooting my nieces wedding in a couple weeks. You weren't thinking I was going to be using it to shoot "Heavenly bodies", eh? If only....

Well we'll see what you can grab at the wedding!
