May 28, 2004 A nice picture of Saturn taken using Leslie's 6" Orion telescope. Not too shabby!
Indian River stagazing. Apparently Heather was the star of the show. It looks like everyone is posing. Hmm? We got great views of the planets and some beautiful open clusters.
Beautiful CCD image of M-13 taken by Patrick Stonehouse of Wolverine, Michigan. Patrick is also known for discovering a comet April 26, 1998. You rule!
March 22. Jupiter and two of it's moons taken by Jeff & Richard using a Kodak digital camera. In this picture the moons are below the planet. About 20 minutes after taking this picture the moons eclipsed one another. This picture has not been manipulated to show any additional detail.
March 22. Rich taking a gander at Jupiter using the new Binoviewer. The temperature was about 15 degrees. We're looking forward to summer!
Picture taken on 3-28-04 at 11:25 pm by Jerry Mathews under less than favorable, cloudy skies from Inkster, Michigan using a Kodak DC 4800 Digital Camera & his 8" Celestron GPS and a 6.3mm eyepiece.
Jupiter is a wonderful object to photograph. This picture was taken by Jeff & Mauricio on April 03, 2004 using a Kodak DC4800, 1/8 second. The temperature was around 30 degrees. Thank goodness summer is on it's way.
This photo of Saturn was taken by Jeff & Mauricio on April 03, 2004 using a Kodak DC4800, 1/8 second. We didn't use any photo imaging processing software. Our telescope is awesome!
Venus isn't all too exciting because it's enshrouded in gas.. This photo was taken on April 04, 2004.
The moon taken without the aid of a telescope. You can see the clouds just below the moon as they rolled in for the evening.
Another picture of Jupiter taken on April 04, 2004. I love Jupiter. These pictures were taken by Jeff & Whitney using the Kodak DC4800 at 1/8 second exposure and 127 power. Jupiter is huge at 700X. You need to come out and see for yourself. You'll be "sirius-ly" surprised.
There is nothing like a beautiful full moon in April. I took several pictures of the moon but didn't want to put too many of them here. This was captured using the Kodak at 1/16 of a second using about 60 power. You should see the moon at 750 power.
