The Ring Nebula - M57

Waiting for the clouds to move out on my second of three nights at the 1.5-m telescope on Mt. Lemmon, I took the opportunity to take a few images that I normally wouldn't have time to take. This object is known as the "Ring Nebula", because it is, obviously, shaped like a ring. (Great imagination, we astronomers!)

You can find out more information about this object at Tuugii's blog here.

Mt. Lemmon Survey Telescope - 10 second exposure, 1.5 meter aperture @ f/ 2. For more about this telescope and MLS, follow the Catalina Sky Survey link on the right side of this page.

Hitchcock's "The Birds"

My friend Tim & I went birding at his favorite location, Plum Island, northeast of Boston, during my trip there. Literally tens and maybe hundreds of thousands of Barn & Tree Swallows were flocking during our visit. Each dot in this image is a bird and this is just one of many flocks that flew overhead during our day there!

Boston - 52370

After several hours and several miles walking around Boston, I stopped to rest on a bench next to a government building. Looking around, I liked the way the angles of the buildings seemed to mesh together from my vantage point.
